A note on correlational measures
- Author(s): Schlimmer, Jeffrey C.

Determining the degree to which two events are interrelated is a common subtask for artificial intelligence systems, especially learning systems. This note examines four correlational measures which allow quantization of the relationships between events. Despite the fact that the measures have diverse motivations and formulations, they all indicate irrelevance precisely at the point of statistical independence.
