One of the SIS/DLIS Faculty Candidate Colloquium Series
Similarity and their Applications in
Tuesday, March 15, 2005
Abstract: Similarity and categorization play significant roles in human perception and cognition. Furthermore, similarity is one of the most widely researched constructs and forms the basis for several theories in the fields of psychology and cognition. In Library & information science, we organize materials (e.g. through classification systems) according to their content similarity and some information retrieval systems use similarity matching mechanisms (called similarity measures) based on models of similarity. The presentation will review applications of four major models of similarity in information retrieval and report results of a study conducted to test one of the models, Tversky's Contrast Model."
