  • One important thing to note is that the KL Divergence is an asymmetric measure (i.e. KL(P,Q) ![1]
  • As expected we see a smaller KL Divergence for distributions 1 & 2 than 1 & 3.[1]
  • And we also see the KL Divergence of a distribution with itself is 0.[1]
  • Finally, we comment on recent applications of KL divergence in the neural coding literature and highlight its natural application.[2]
  • Proposition Let and be two probability density functions such that their KL divergence is well-defined.[3]
  • This study also investigates a variety of applications of KL divergence in medical diagnostics.[4]
  • Graphically, KL divergence depicted through the information graph.[4]
  • It described an application of the KL divergence for discrete biomarkers.[4]
  • Section 2 describes preliminaries, including mathematical details of the KL divergence.[4]
  • Optimal encoding of information is a very interesting topic, but not necessary for understanding KL divergence.[5]
  • With KL divergence we can calculate exactly how much information is lost when we approximate one distribution with another.[5]
  • Now we can go ahead and calculate the KL divergence for our two approximating distributions.[5]
  • We can double check our work by looking at the way KL Divergence changes as we change our values for this parameter.[5]
  • It is a great post explaining the KL divergence, but felt some of the intricacies in the explanation can be explained in more detail.[6]
  • Let us now compute the KL divergence for each of the approximate distributions we came up with.[6]
  • First we will see how the KL divergence changes when the success probability of the binomial distribution changes.[6]
  • You can see that as we are moving away from our choice (red dot), the KL divergence rapidly increases.[6]
  • The SciPy library provides the kl_div() function for calculating the KL divergence, although with a different definition as defined here.[7]
  • It also provides the rel_entr() function for calculating the relative entropy, which matches the definition of KL divergence here.[7]
  • # example of calculating the kl divergence (relative entropy) with scipy from scipy .[7]
  • It uses the KL divergence to calculate a normalized score that is symmetrical.[7]
  • Relative entropy relates to " rate function " in the theory of large deviations .[8]
  • Relative entropy remains well-defined for continuous distributions, and furthermore is invariant under parameter transformations .[8]
  • Relative entropy is directly related to the Fisher information metric .[8]
