We would like to thank Greg Sotiropoulos for pointing out to us that the posterior weightings in Equation 9 were mistakenly written as prior weightings.

Equation 9 in the published article read:

(9) $\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },c=\text{S},D\right)=\frac{1}{2}\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },{\theta }_{\text{SV}},D\right)+\frac{1}{2}\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },{\theta }_{\text{SH}},D\right)$

It should have read:

(9) $\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },c=\text{S},D\right)=\frac{\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SV}}\right)}{\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SV}}\right)+\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SH}}\right)}\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },{\theta }_{\text{SV}},D\right)+\frac{\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SH}}\right)}{\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SV}}\right)+\mathbb{P}\left(D|{\theta }_{\text{SH}}\right)}\mathbb{P}\left({z}^{\ast }|{x}^{\ast },{\theta }_{\text{SH}},D\right)$

We apologize for any confusion that may have occurred.

The article has been corrected accordingly.
