### Sentence similarity prediction

Your problem can be solved with Word2vec as well as Doc2vec. Doc2vec would give better results because it takes sentences into account while training the model. Doc2vec solution You can train your ...

### When to use cosine simlarity over Euclidean similarity

When to use cosine similarity over Euclidean similarity Cosine similarity looks at the angle between two vectors, euclidian similarity at the distance between two points. Let's say you are in an e-...

### Applications and differences for Jaccard similarity and Cosine Similarity

The answer from saq7 is wrong, as well as not answering the question. ∥A∥ means the $L2$ norm of $A$, i.e. the length of the vector in Euclidean space, not the dimensionality of the vector $A$. In ...

### Best practical algorithm for sentence similarity

Cosine Similarity for Vector Space could be you answer. Or you could calculate the eigenvector of each sentences. But the Problem is, what is similarity? "This is a tree", "This is not ...

### How to measure the similarity between two images?

Check this handout! Well, there a few so... lets go: Given two images $J[x,y]$ and $I[x,y]$ with $(x,y) \in N^{N \times M}$... A - Used in template matching: Template Matching is linear and is not ...

### Why use cosine similarity instead of scaling the vectors when calculating the similarity of vectors?

Let $u, v$ be vectors. The "cosine distance" between them is given by $$d_{\cos}(u, v) = 1 - \frac{u}{\|u\|} \cdot \frac{v}{\|v\|} = 1 - \cos \theta_{u,v},$$ and the proposed "...

### Applications and differences for Jaccard similarity and Cosine Similarity

Jaccard similarity is used for two types of binary cases: Symmetric, where 1 and 0 has equal importance (gender, marital status,etc) Asymmetric, where 1 and 0 have different levels of importance (...

### When to use cosine simlarity over Euclidean similarity

Ok, so, your intuition here is wrong. Not necessarily about the examples you gave, but the fact that you think Euclidian distance could be useful in 200 dimensional space. 200d space is so, so empty. ...

### Sentence similarity prediction

Word Mover’s Distance (WMD) is an algorithm for finding the distance between sentences. WMD is based on word embeddings (e.g., word2vec) which encode the semantic meaning of words into dense vectors. ...

### Cosine similarity vs The Levenshtein distance

As mentioned in other answers, traditionally cosine is used to measure similarity between vectors whereas Levenshtein is used as a string similarity measure, i.e. measuring the distance between ...

### Best practical algorithm for sentence similarity

One approach you could try is averaging word vectors generated by word embedding algorithms (word2vec, glove, etc). These algorithms create a vector for each word and the cosine similarity among them ...

### Applications and differences for Jaccard similarity and Cosine Similarity

The answer by saq7 is wrong. Where $\mathbf{a}$ and $\mathbf{b}$ are binary vectors, they can be interpreted as sets of indices with value 1. Let's therefore consider sets $A$ and $B$. Jaccard ...

### Text similarity with sentence embeddings

One approach is using Word Mover’s Distance (WMD). WMD is an algorithm for finding the distance between texts of different lengths, where each word is represented as a word embedding vector. The ...

### How to measure the similarity between two text documents?

In general,there are two ways for finding document-document similarity TF-IDF approach Make a text corpus containing all words of documents . You have to use tokenisation and stop word removal . ...

### Similarity of words using BERTMODEL

First of all, I think you are confused with pretrained and finetuned. BERT is pretrained on ...

### Which supervised learning algorithms are available for matching?

You can try to frame this problem as a recommender systems situation. Where you have your users (prospective students) and items (alumni) and want to recommend to the users one item. It's not a ...

### How to compute the Jaccard Similarity in this example? (Jaccard vs. Cosine)

Cosine similarity is for comparing two real-valued vectors, but Jaccard similarity is for comparing two binary vectors (sets). So you cannot compute the standard Jaccard similarity index between your ...

### Sentence similarity prediction

You can try an easy solution using sklearn and it's going to work fine. Use tfidfvectorizer to get a vector representation of each text Fit the vectorizer with your data, removing stop-words. ...

### Calculate similarity on boolean data

You should look at the Jaccard Index, is the de facto similarity between set of items, where the sets are represented using a boolean vector. In this boolean vector each coordinate represents an item, ...

### Similarity score: Can Sklearn SVR predict values greater than 1 and less than 0?

I am using svm.SVR() from scikit-learn to apply Logistic Regression on my training data to solve similarity problem. Wait a second, if you're using support-vector regression, then you're not using ...

### Why use cosine similarity instead of scaling the vectors when calculating the similarity of vectors?

In your example, User 1 and User 2 bought the same ingredients, but User 2 bought 100x more ingredients than User 1. If you normalize and use Euclidean distance, then the distance is 0 (by the ...

### Vector space model cosine tf-idf for finding similar documents

Unfortunately, the math simplifies to show that you can't rigorously justify restricting the cosine similarity comparison of the vectors based on their lengths. The key point is that the cosine ...

### similarity measure with two features

Yes, multiple different ways. First, we could consider (id-artist,id-track) items as the elements of our set, and compute the Jaccard similarity by comparing those sets. Note that if the artist's id ...

### Best way to search for a similar document given the ngram

You could use a hashing vectorizer on your documents. The result will be a list of vectors. Then vectorize your ngrams in the same way and calculate the projection of this new vector on the old ones. ...

### How can I group texts with similar content together?

Well, after further googling I found the solution: MinHash or SimHash will do the job and I also found a tool implementing MinHash written in Scala on GitHub right at this link

### Is there a way to measure correlation between two similar datasets?

### Is there a way to measure correlation between two similar datasets?

I see a lot of people post this similar question on StackExchange, and the truth is that there is no methodology to compare if data set A looks like set B. You can compare summary statistics, such as ...
