Is giving the user imprecise information good UX?

I noticed that YouTube now doesn’t show the exact number of views anymore, when the video has more than 1.000 views.

But instead of showing something abbreviated like 203k views, they show 203.000 views. Clearly rounded and in principle inaccurate.

I asked a similar question about YouTubes decision to not show the actual date of upload or “age” of a video, but rather showing imprecise representations like 1 year ago for a video, that was posted 1 year and 10 months ago: What is the advantage of using imprecise representations of time i. e. 'an hour ago'?

This latest change does not hide more accurate information so much as it pretends it isn’t available.

Is there any advantage to this, with reference to user experience or site usability? I personally really dislike this choice, because, while pretty much useless information in this example, it feels like I get a curated version of reality.

More information about the 10 types of information that can be useful for WSD (Word Sense Disambiguation)

Agirre and Martinez (Knowledge Sources for Word Sense Disambiguation) distinguish ten different types of information that can be useful for WSD (Word Sense Disambiguation):

  1. Part of speech (POS) is used to organize the word senses. For instance, in WordNet 1.6 handle has 5 senses as a verb, only one as a noun.
  2. Morphology, specially the relation between derived words and their roots. For instance, the noun agreement has 6 senses, its verbal root agree 7, but not all combinations hold.
  3. Collocations. The 9-way ambiguous noun match has only one possible sense in “football match”.
  4. Semantic word associations, which van be further classified as follows:
    a Taxonomical organization, e.g. the association between chair and furniture. b Situation, such as the association between chair and waiter. c Topic, as between bat and baseball. d Argument-head relation, e.g. dog and bite in “the dog bite the postman”. These associations, if given as a sense-to-word relation, are strong indicators for a sense. For instance, in “The chair and the table were missing” the shared class in the taxonomy with table can be used to choose the furniture sense of chair.
  5. Syntactic cues. Subcategorization information is also useful, e.g. eat in the “take a meal” sense is intransitive, but it is transitive in other senses.
  6. Semantic roles. In “The bad new will eat him” the object of eat fills the experiencer role, and this fact can be used to better constrain the possible senses for eat.
  7. Selectional preferences. For instance, eat in the “take a meal” sense prefers humans as subjects. This knowledge type is similar to the argument-head relation (4d), but selectional preferences are given in terms of semantic classes, rather that plain words.
  8. Domain. For example, in the domain of sports, the “tennis racket” sense of racket is preferred.
  9. Frequency of senses. Out of the 4 senses of people the general sense accounts for 90% of the occurrences in Semcor.
  10. Pragmatics. In some cases, full-fledged reasoning has to come into play to disambiguate head as a nail-head in the now classical utterance “Nadia swing the hammer at the nail, and the head flew off”.

My questions are:

1) Is there other kind of information useful for WSD?

2) I only see disambiguation algorithms using at most three different kinds of information at the same time (for example A Novel Neural Sequence Model with Multiple Attentions for Word Sense Disambiguation). Is there a powerful system/algorithm integrating all those types of information?

Can either nondetection or mind blank prevent information about oneself being divined from others through legend lore?

In this instance the party was trying to legend lore the true name of a legendary creature that had protected itself with nondetection and mind blank.

However this entity’s parents were not given the same security and were still in existence. Would legend before be able to find the information through them?

Especially in question is the line from mind blank:

The spell even foils wish spells and spells or effects of similar power used to affect the target’s mind or to gain information about the target.

information theory, find entropy given Markov chain

There is an information source on the information source alphabet $ A = \{a, b, c\}$ represented by the state transition diagram below:

Markov chain

a) The random variable representing the $ i$ -th output from this information source is represented by $ X_i$ . It is known that the user is now in state $ S_1$ . In this state, let $ H (X_i|s_1)$ denote the entropy when observing the next symbol $ X_i$ , find the value of $ H (X_i|s_1)$ , entropy of this information source, Calculate $ H (X_i|X_{i-1}) $ and $ H (X_i)$ respectively. Assume $ i$ is quite large

How can I find $ H(X_i|s_1)?$ I know that $ $ H(X_i|s_1) = -\sum_{i,s_1} p\left(x_i, s_1\right)\cdot\log_b\!\left(p\left(x_i|s_1\right)\right) = -\sum_{i,j} p\left(x_i, s_1\right)\cdot\log_b\!\left(\frac{p\left(x_i, s_1\right)}{p\left(s_1\right)}\right)$ $ but I don’t know $ p(s_1)$ .

$ $ A=\begin{pmatrix}0.25 & 0.75 & 0\0.5 & 0 & 0.5 \0 & 0.7 & 0.3 \end{pmatrix}.$ $

From matrix I can know that $ p(s_1|s_1)=0.25$ , etc.

But what is the probability of $ s_1$ ? And how can I calculate $ H (X_i|X_{i-1})$ ?

Display more information about nodes

I have a visual graph that represents connections between nodes. User can find connection between two nodes by typing names of both ends and they get all possible paths from start node to end node like this:

enter image description here

I want to find a way to display information such as Parents, Children etc. in a pleasant way. How can I rearrange or change this to be more suitable for users?

Each option in a tree has action associated with it, for example clicking Children -> V2 will take them to that node in a graph.

Information hoarding anti pattern

In The Phoenix Project the author describes an interesting antipattern: Brent is a super-important dev-ops engineer that personally knows the details of every new and old implementation and setup, but he does not share, document or distribute his knowledge. Ultimately every small task or large project crucially depends on him.

While this Brent is hailed as a hero by the whole organization, the main protagonist of the book recognized that this is an anti-pattern and starts to break down this information “person-silo” by shadowing him and documenting his knowledge.

Is there a name for this antipattern? Is it widely recognized?
