Efficient and Effective Similarity Search Over Probabilistic Data Based on Earth Mover's Distance Jia Xu1

Probabilistic data is coming as a new deluge along with the technical advances on geographical tracking, multimedia processing, sensor network and RFID. While similarity search is an important functionality supporting the manipulation of probabilistic data, it raises new challenges to traditional relational database. The problem stems from the limited effectiveness of the distance metric supported by the existing database system. On the other hand, some complicated distance operators have proven their values for better distinguishing ability in the probabilistic domain.
