In that paragraph, did you mean to say "findings_i is correct"? Good point, I think you're right, I changed the text accordingly.

The main point I was getting at is that the phrases:

  1. Experiments are important to perform.
  2. Predictors cannot decently predict the results of experiments unless they have gigantic amounts of time.

Are a bit contradictory. You can choose either, but probably not both.

Likewise, I'd expect that experiments that are easier to predict are ones that are more useful, which is more convenient than the other alternative.

I think generally we will want to estimate importance/generality of experiments separate from their predictability.
