Comparing methods to find a best exemplar in a multidimensional space

Titia Benders, Paul Boersma

We present a simple algorithm for running a listening experiment aimed at finding the best exemplar in a multidimensional space. For simulated humanlike listeners, who have perception thresholds and some decision noise on their responses, the algorithm on average ends up twelve times closer than Iverson and Evans’ algorithm [1].
