Hey everyone…we have been working with some Ph.D. students from Carnegie Mellon in the area of statistics to analyze whether we could create an improve racer ranking system for UltraSignup. These students have come up with a survey that they feel will help them look into the development of a new algorithm.
We want to make it clear that if a decision is made to use a new ranking system, created from this research, that any such new ranking system would sit next to the current ranking system. The original UltraSignup ranking system will never go away - rather we are considering creating a new system.
If you have the chance, please fill out the survey for these students - https://forms.gle/FQG8BAFeNNRHrB1v6
