Abstract. Searching in metric spaces is a very active field since it offers methods for indexing and searching by similarity in collections of unstructured data. These methods select some objects of the collection as reference objects to build the indexes. It has been shown that the way the references are selected affects the search performance, and several algorithms for good reference selection have been proposed. Most of them assume the space to have a reasonably regular distribution. However, in some spac…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
