- AKA: Confidence Level, Prediction Likelihood Value, Prediction Confidence Estimate.
- It can be produced by a Confidence Estimation Function (produced by a Confidence Estimation).
- It can range from being a Coarse Confidence Score (such as a strong prediction score) to being a Fine-Grained Confidence Score.
- It can range from being a Classification Confidence Score to being a Rank Prediction Confidence Score being an Estimation Confidence Score.
- It can range from being an Overconfident Confidence Level to being an Underconfident Confidence Level.

- QUOTE: we propose a novel approach in which exception rules are discovered according to their confidence level based on the normal approximations of the multinomial distributions. This approach can be called as autonomous, since an exception rule is discovered using neither users’ confidence evaluation nor domain knowledge.
