Q 239. Sir Francis Galton, in 1906, took more than 700 guesses from fair visitors about the weight of an Ox and the average value from guesses was found to be precise. Sometimes surveying for guessed values makes a lot of sense because the average obtained through crowd intelligence is better than individual assessments. At other times crowds provide values that are completely off the mark. What are the elements to be considered before we think about relying on wisdom of the crowds? Are there any practical applications of this theory today? Note for website visitors - Two questions are asked every week on this platform. One on Tuesday and the other on Friday.
