On an Approximation of Mutual Information
December 1974 (vol. 23 no. 12)
pp. 1311-1313
T. Vilmansen, Bell Northern Research
An approximation of mutual information which is often used for feature evaluation in pattern recognition is shown to be more closely related to Bayes error probability than mutual information is when equal a priori probabilities are assumed.
Index Terms:
Bayesian distance, error bounds, error probability, feature evaluation, interbound distance, mutual information. Donaldson.
