Formalization and quantification of the intuitive notion of relatedness between terms has long been a major challenge for computing science, and an intriguing problem for other sciences. In this study, we meet the challenge by considering a general notion of relatedness between terms and a given topic. We introduce a formal definition of a relatedness measure based on term discrimination measures. Measurement of discrimination information (MDI) of terms is a fundamental issue for many areas of… CONTINUE READING
