A Gentle Introduction to Information Entropy
Updated 07 Mar Mo Chen Retrieved February 28, Comming the same problem which Maksim : who knows why nmi randi ,1,1e3 ,randi ,1,1e3. They're different series of numbers, so how they share similar information?
Can any one tell me maximum possible value must achieve according to simulation based for these tests. In the conditional entropy, you cannot calculate the joint distribution from marginal distributions.
The joint distribution should be one of the arguments of the function. I don't think either of the proposed solutions provided by Francesco and Subash are correct. If you have. The original code does, whereas Francesco's change doesn't. So simply reversing the order is incorrect. The underlying error is that the code expects x and y to be positive integers. Rounding a continuous variable will mean that you have valid indexes except if the input has a value that rounds to zero.
However, you could consider this as being analogous to binning the data, except that if multiple points go into the same bin, that bin will only ever have a value of 1. So I suspect Subash's suggestion also invalidates the calculation. The real answer is actually provided by the author in the package description: "This toolbox contains functions for discrete random variables". A different approach must be used if one or both of the variables is continuous. Hey guys, regarding sparse function error, which answer is correct of the below as answered by francesco and subash Is the output of the conditionalEntropy function a normalized value?
I had got values of conditional Entropy to be greater than 1, which was expected. Very useful and efficient toolbox, thank you. However, there is a bug in the nmi. But this is obvious a typo, so it does not influence my rating. Learn About Live Editor.

Information is the source of a communication system, whether it is analog or digital. Information theory is a mathematical approach to the study of coding of information along with the quantification, storage, and communication of information. These three events occur at different times. The difference in these conditions help us gain knowledge on the probabilities of the occurrence of events. When we observe the possibilities of the occurrence of an event, how surprising or uncertain it would be, it means that we are trying to have an idea on the average content of the information from the source of the event.
Information theory is a subfield of mathematics concerned with transmitting data across a noisy channel. A cornerstone of information theory is the idea of quantifying how much information there is in a message. More generally, this can be used to quantify the information in an event and a random variable, called entropy, and is calculated using probability. Calculating information and entropy is a useful tool in machine learning and is used as the basis for techniques such as feature selection, building decision trees, and, more generally, fitting classification models. As such, a machine learning practitioner requires a strong understanding and intuition for information and entropy.
