On the Relationship between the Posterior and Optimal Similarity

Abstract

For a classification problem described by the joint density P (ω,x), models of P (ω = ω′|x, x′) (the “Bayesian similarity measure”) have been shown to be an optimal similarity measure for nearest neighbor classification. This paper analyzes demonstrates several additional properties of that conditional distribution. The paper first shows that we can… (More)
