the Annotator was a collective experiment during the two-week worksession Cqrrelations in Brussels ("poetry to the statistician, science to the dissident and detox to the data-addict"). A group of eight people developed the pattern.en.paternalism feature, by manualy annotating paragraphs from Wikipedia and the Gutenberg Project on the presence of patternalism. From the start the group was interested in how a Golden Standard is established through an annotation process, a paradoxical situation where human input performs truth, but is simultaneously made invisible. Annotation here means the manual work of scoring large amounts of data that can than be used to train machine learning classifiers. This scored data becomes a reference against which data-mining systems are trained and tested.
