Daniel Sedra William Cohen Improved Methods in Semantic Relations

The goal of this project was to develop improved methods of measuring semantic distance between strings. This was done using graphical methods over Wikipedia hyperlinks to generate features which were then combined to determine the semantic similarity between strings. The resulting scores were evaluated against a baseline in order to gauge performance improvements. The accuracy, speed, and scalability of the algorithm were the key issues targeted for improvement by this project.
