    The CEO said that it is going to be much better in correctly pinpointing the ethnicities (recall) and the correct proportions too (pecision), he showed this graph.

    Keep in mind that this is a representation of a beta and isn't using the exact ethnicies in 2.0.

    23andMe actually doesn't divide Germany that well from Northwestern Europe, they literally lump everything in Fernch & German.
    According to to what was said, MyHeritage is going to divide the current North & West European into Germany, Lowlands, France, etc. That's what I understood by what was said. I don't know how they're going to do that, though.

    They said they're going to solve that too, apparently in this graph.

    This is true and it's not satisfactory.

    On the other hand as a customer I primarily want an applicable statement.

    And this is exactly what 23andMe does with their "unsexy" "Broadly" categories. I've not seen any company making more applicable statements than 23andMe.

    LivingDNA impressing clueless folks by assigning 3.4% (not applicable, ofc) "Devon" to me is another strategy.

    The writings on the bottom-left image are most likely just an inferrence based on the example image given and do not align with the descriptions given by the CEO.

    I agree with that, the unique way that 23andMe organizes it's ethnicities is genius, but the way ancestry shows how one ethnicity shifts into another with their respective overlaps is also pretty good, but not everybody understands it correctly, unfortunately.

    Can't wait for my ethnicity report on MyHeritage to somehow get less accurate.
    [1] "distance%=1.7256"

    West_Iberia_IA,54.4
