Dimensionality Invariant Similarity Measure

  title={Dimensionality Invariant Similarity Measure},
  author={Ahmad Basheer Hassanat},
This paper presents a new similarity measure to be used for general tasks including supervised learning, which is represented by the K-nearest neighbor classifier (KNN). The proposed similarity measure is invariant to large differences in some dimensions in the feature space. The proposed metric is proved mathematically to be a metric. To test its viability for different applications, the KNN used the proposed metric for classifying test examples chosen from a number of real datasets. Compared… CONTINUE READING
