During the interview on the search for extraterrestrial intelligence with Jill Tarter, she mentions about how she has had two false positives within her system. This is a relatively new concept in terms of predictive systems since the once we learned about in the past few months vary greatly to this. In the ancient systems, they never really questioned the validity of a prediction and just consistency believed it to be true, however, here there is no previous defined system and everything is still new and being learned as they progress. So I just wonder how these false positives affect the accuracy of the system, or if they don't have any affect given its framework hasn't really been decided yet?

yes! @Prof. Alyssa Goodman I'm wondering what effect, if any, will false positives have on our predictive system as a whole since we haven't directly seen them within the systems we previously studied?
Thanks @Julie Alarifi -- I'm understanding you to be asking "how are false positives fed back in to a Predictive System to improve it?"--is that what you mean?
