Classification with Similarity Metrics

Finding out which similarity metric leads to human-like classification performance.

Classifying objects—assigning them to a category—is a common issue for AI and humans. Often it is addressed by computation of pairwise similarities between to-be-classified and already-classified objects. Similarity, however, can be computed in various ways. This project tests different mathematical similarities in classifiers.
