## Study Notes

• Attributes can be classified into four types based on their properties: distinctness, order, addition, and multiplication.
• Discrete attributes have a finite or countably infinite set of values, such as zip codes or counts, while continuous attributes have real numbers as values like temperature or weight.
• Central tendency of data can be measured using mean, median, and mode, with the empirical formula relating mean, mode, and median.
• Correlation measures the linear relationship between objects and is computed by standardizing data objects and taking their dot product.
• Mutual information can be used as a loss function, involving joint distributions that are tractable for discrete variables, and can be parameterized using a deep neural network for estimation.
