Automated OCV detection misses

    Hello, @mike-ds,

    You mentioned the following on AHH00014yx:

    PS: so why were these not picked up by the automated ocv detecting software?

    In short, the computers aren't 100% efficient with picking out all the interesting off-center vertices, and this is the reason that Higgs Hunters is a Zooniverse project. One of the core requirements of kicking off a Zooniverse project is that the task must not be readily completed with computers and algorithms, and so they must rely on human pattern recognition and interpretation to complete the dataset.
