Great! I am wondering whether there is anchoring in the first study. The machine's accuracy is 65% and human unassisted accuracy is 54%. The anchoring effect suggests that humans decisions are biased towards the anchor. In this case, we should expect human decisions to change towards better accuracy. The results show that this has not happened. Humans were not affected by the anchors; their predictions might have even moved in the opposite direction.

Another interesting point is that there is virtually no difference between human predictions and chance :)
