I wrote a program to check the similarity of 40 documents. Firstly i use exact Jaccard method and secondly Minhash Jaccard method. I consider that the 2 methods differ if their values are differ more than 0,1. I also run the program for permutations 10,40,100,200,450. Which Jaccard limit must i choose to consider 2 documents as similar?

  • $\begingroup$ ok thank you. And something else, if i choose bigger numbers for permutation will i get more accurate results about the documents similarity? $\endgroup$ – Lee Yaan Jan 6 '17 at 22:15
