Re: Doubt about Q3 of homework 3

You use the same distance/similarity measure as in Qn 2.

Hello Prof Rao

I have a doubt about Q3 of Homework 3. In Q3, we are supposed to do agglomerative clustering on documents given in the previous question. Also, for inter-cluster similarity, we are supposed to use single link distance. However, nothing has been specified about the similarity measure to be used for finding the similarity(distance) between the individual documents themselves. Are we supposed to use the same measure as the previous question ie. 'Bag based similarity' or we are supposed to use something else. Thank you.
