The blog is intended to keep interested readers informed about past and recent research concerning (semantic) similarity measurement theories and applications. Beside this, I will also publish a lot of rough and often half-ready ideas or comments; of course you are invited to discuss them using the comment function. However I will try to tackle a broad range of similarity research, as GI scientist my focus may slightly differ compared to readers from cognitive science or theoretical information science. If you like to, please feel free to contribute your own ideas. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact me.
