Ground truth is a term used in various fields to refer to information provided by direct observation as opposed to information provided by inference.


The Oxford English Dictionary (s.v. "ground truth") records the use of the word "Groundtruth" in the sense of a "fundamental truth" from Henry Ellison's poem "The Siberian Exile's Tale", published in 1833.
