Distance metric learning, with application to clustering with sideinformation,”
 in Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems 15,
, 2002
"... Abstract Many algorithms rely critically on being given a good metric over their inputs. For instance, data can often be clustered in many "plausible" ways, and if a clustering algorithm such as Kmeans initially fails to find one that is meaningful to a user, the only recourse may be for ..."

to provide examples. In this paper, we present an algorithm that, given examples of similar (and, if desired, dissimilar) pairs of points in Ê Ò , learns a distance metric over Ê Ò that respects these relationships. Our method is based on posing metric learning as a convex optimization problem, which allows
Distance metric learning for large margin nearest neighbor classification
 In NIPS
, 2006
"... We show how to learn a Mahanalobis distance metric for knearest neighbor (kNN) classification by semidefinite programming. The metric is trained with the goal that the knearest neighbors always belong to the same class while examples from different classes are separated by a large margin. On seven ..."

Mtree: An Efficient Access Method for Similarity Search in Metric Spaces
, 1997

A comparison of string distance metrics for namematching tasks
, 2003
"... Using an opensource, Java toolkit of namematching methods, we experimentally compare string distance metrics on the task of matching entity names. We investigate a number of different metrics proposed by different communities, including editdistance metrics, fast heuristic string comparators, tok ..."

Features of similarity.
 Psychological Review
, 1977
"... Similarity plays a fundamental role in theories of knowledge and behavior. It serves as an organizing principle by which individuals classify objects, form concepts, and make generalizations. Indeed, the concept of similarity is ubiquitous in psychological theory. It underlies the accounts of stimu ..."

. These models represent objects as points in some coordinate space such that the observed dissimilarities between objects correspond to the metric distances between the respective points. Practically all analyses of proximity data have been metric in nature, although some (e.g., hierarchical clustering) yield
GPSLess Low Cost Outdoor Localization for Very Small Devices.
 IEEE Personal Communications Magazine,
, 2000
"... AbstractInstrumenting the physical world through large networks of wireless sensor nodes, particularly for applications like environmental monitoring of water and soil, requires that these nodes be very small, light, untethered and unobtrusive. The problem of localization, i.e., determining where ..."

In this paper, we review localization techniques and evaluate the effectiveness of a very simple connectivitymetric method for localization in outdoor environments that makes use of the inherent radiofrequency (RF) communications capabilities of these devices.

Projection Pursuit Regression
 Journal of the American Statistical Association
, 1981
"... A new method for nonparametric multiple regression is presented. The procedure models the regression surface as a sum of general smooth functions of linear combinations of the predictor variables in an iterative manner. It is more general than standard stepwise and stagewise regression procedures, ..."

An Optimal Algorithm for Approximate Nearest Neighbor Searching in Fixed Dimensions
 ACMSIAM SYMPOSIUM ON DISCRETE ALGORITHMS
, 1994
"... Consider a set S of n data points in real ddimensional space, R d , where distances are measured using any Minkowski metric. In nearest neighbor searching we preprocess S into a data structure, so that given any query point q 2 R d , the closest point of S to q can be reported quickly. Given any po ..."

Examplebased learning for viewbased human face detection
 IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence
, 1998
"... Abstract—We present an examplebased learning approach for locating vertical frontal views of human faces in complex scenes. The technique models the distribution of human face patterns by means of a few viewbased “face ” and “nonface ” model clusters. At each image location, a difference feature v ..."
