An Empirical Evaluation of Models of Text Document Similarity

  title={An Empirical Evaluation of Models of Text Document Similarity},
  author={Michael D. Lee},
Modeling the semantic similarity between text documents presents a significant theoretical challenge for cognitive science, with ready-made applications in information handling and decision support systems dealing with text. While a number of candidate models exist, they have generally not been assessed in terms of their ability to emulate human judgments of similarity.
