Use angle instead of distance

  • Thought experiment: take a document d and append it to itself. Call this document d′.

  • “Semantically” d and d′ have the same content

  • The Euclidean distance between the two documents can be quite large

  • The angle between the two documents is 0, corresponding to maximal similarity.

  • Key idea: Rank documents according to angle with query.
