I understand that we say something as a gold standard when it involves human intervention/judgement/review.
But can someone help me understand what's the difference between probabilistic gold standard and deterministic gold standard.
For ex: Patient has cancer or not - binary response - Deterministic gold standard which can be provided by humans.
Whereas Patient has 60% chance of being a cancer and 40% chance of not being a cancer. Am I right to understand that this is called as probabilistic gold standard but this can't be produced by Humans right?
Can any human/doctor for example, say this patient has 60% chance of being a cancer and 40 % chance of not being a cancer?
