2014 The Scientific World Journal  
Comparison with other similarity measurements shows the effectiveness of the proposed method. Then, it is applied to collaborative filtering recommendation to measure users' similarity.  ...  To make the similarity well distributed, a new method SIAM (Shape's Indifferent Area and Midpoint) to measure triangular fuzzy number is put forward, which takes the shape's indifferent area and midpoint  ...  Wan proposed a new method to express the similarity of two triangular fuzzy numbers and applied it to multisensor data fusion field to recognize multisensor objectives [17] .  ...

Is ontology alignment like analogy?

Elie Raad, Joerg Evermann
2014 Proceedings of the 29th Annual ACM Symposium on Applied Computing - SAC '14  
This paper presents a novel approach to this problem by applying analogical reasoning, an area of cognitive science that has seen much recent work, to the ontology alignment problem.  ...  We investigate the performance of the LISA cognitive analogy algorithm and present results that show its performance relative to other algorithms. General Terms Algorithms  ...  Cognitive principles have also recently been applied to database schema matching, a problem similar to ontology alignment.  ...

Alignment-based nonmonotonicities in similarity

Robert L. Goldstone
1996 Journal of Experimental Psychology. Learning, Memory and Cognition  
As SIAM predicts, the occurrence of nonmonotonicities depends on the perceptual similarity of features and the duration of presented comparisons.  ...  According to the assumption of monotonicity in similarity judgments, adding a shared feature in common to 2 items should never decrease their similarity.  ...  In applying SIAM to the data, three parameters were allowed to vary, and the other parameters were given the default values described by Goldstone (1994) .  ...
