An Information-Theoretic Definition of Similarity

10 years 4 months ago
An Information-Theoretic Definition of Similarity
Similarity is an important and widely used concept. Previous definitions of similarity are tied to a particular application or a form of knowledge representation. We present an informationtheoretic definition of similarity that is applicable as long as there is a probabilistic model. We demonstrate how our definition can be used to measure the similarity in a number of different domains.
