# turicreate.toolkits.distances.jaccard¶

turicreate.toolkits.distances.jaccard(x, y)

Compute the Jaccard distance between between two dictionaries. Suppose $$K_x$$ and $$K_y$$ are the sets of keys from the two input dictionaries.

$D(x, y) = 1 - \frac{|K_x \cap K_y|}{|K_x \cup K_y|}$
Parameters: x : dict First input dictionary. y : dict Second input dictionary. out : float Jaccard distance between x and y.

Notes

• Jaccard distance treats the keys in the input dictionaries as sets, and ignores the values in the input dictionaries.
