Ingredient Rankings

Some ingredients more strongly indicate delicious or disgusting classification than others, e.g. poop always ruins ice cream. The naive Bayesian classifier underlying The Ice Cream Computer uses the number of times an ingredient has appeared in delicious or disgusting ice creams to estimate the probability that a given ice cream containing that ingredient will be delicious. The per-ingredient values are:
