We study the problem of defining similarity measures on preferences from a decision-theoretic point of view. We propose a similarity measure, called probabilistic distance, that originates from the Kendall's tau function, a well-known concept in the statistical literature. We compare this measure to other existing similarity measures on preferences. The key advantage of this measure is its extensibility to accommodate partial preferences and uncertainty. We develop efficient methods to compute… Expand
