# The Monge-Kantorovich Optimal Transport Distance for Image Comparison

8 Apr 2018Michael SnowJan Van lent

This paper focuses on the Monge-Kantorovich formulation of the optimal transport problem and the associated $L^2$ Wasserstein distance. We use the $L^2$ Wasserstein distance in the Nearest Neighbour (NN) machine learning architecture to demonstrate the potential power of the optimal transport distance for image comparison...
