Elicitation is the study of statistics or properties which are computable via empirical risk minimization. This has applications in understanding which loss function to use in a regression for a particular statistic or finding a surrogate loss function which is easier to optimize. While several recent papers have approached the general question of which properties are elicitable, we suggest that this is the wrong question—all properties are elicitable by first … Continue Reading
