An efficient MapReduce Algorithm for performing Similarity Joins between multisets is proposed. Filtering techniques for similarity joins minimize the number of pairs of entities joined and hence improve the efficiency of the algorithm. Multisets represent real-world data better by considering the frequency of its elements. Prior serial algorithms(More)
