Generalized Information

A Straightforward Method for Judging Machine Learning Models

  • Jonathan Bartlett

Abstract

Generalized Information (GI) is a measurement of the degree to which a program can be said to generalize a dataset. It is calculated by creating a program to model the data set, measuring the Active Information in the model, and subtracting out the size of the model. Active Information allows GI to be usable with both exact and inexact models.
