    Asymmetric Information Distances For Automated Taxonomy Construction

    A novel method for automatically constructing taxonomies for specific research domains is presented. The proposed methodology uses term co-occurrence frequencies as an indicator of the semantic closeness between terms. To support the automated creation of taxonomies or subject classifications they present a simple modification to the basic distance measure, and...
