Problems with Precision: A Response to "Comments on 'Data Mining Static Code Attributes to Learn Defect Predictors'"


Zhang and Zhang argue that predictors are useless unless they have high precison&recall. We have a different view, for two reasons. First, for SE data sets with large neg/pos ratios, it is often required to lower precision to achieve higher recall. Second, there are many domains where low precision detectors are useful.
