### Comparing distributions: Kernels estimate good representations, l1 distances give good tests

Note

Given two set of observations, are they drawn from the same
distribution? Our paper Comparing distributions: l1 geometry
improves kernel two-sample testing
at the **NeurIPS 2019 conference** revisits this classic statistical
problem known as “two-sample testing”.

This post explains the context and the paper with a bit of hand …
