3. What is the other name of the cross-entropy? a) inaccuracy b) affinity c) joint entropy d) conditional entropy

4. Is mutual information (MI) a metric distance Yes, sure! No, no way! 5. Among the class of parametric family of distances, Bregman divergences and Csiszar f-divergences (also called Ali-Silvey distances) are of prime interests. The Jensen-Shannon divergence (average of distribution entropies minus the entropy of the average distribution) belongs to: Bregman divergences Csiszar f-divergences Not a Bregman/Csiszar divergence, it is a Jensen difference for the Shannon entropy only (Burbea-Rao divergence). 6. C.R. Rao pioneered the geometrization of statistics in 1945 by taking the Fisher information matric as the Riemannian matrix of a statistical manifold. In the same paper, Rao proved what is now called the Cramer-Rao lower bound. This seminal lower bound was later improved using a sequence of matrices that bear the name: Amari matrices Basu matrices Mahalanobis matrices Bhattacharyya matrices

7. Means like the arithmetic, geometric or harmonic means can be generalized by axiomatizing a few expected properties. This was done independently by Kolmogorov and Nagumo, by choosing a strictly increasing continuous function f and defining the mean as f^{{-1}}((f(a)+f(b))/2). What is the other name of those f-means: information mean quasi-arithmetic mean Pythagoras means entropic means

8. Riemannian statistical manifolds where first investigated in the 1940's by C.R. Rao and Jeffreys. The seminal paper of C.R. Rao was published in the Bulletin of Calcutta Mathematical Society. When? In 1944 In 1945 In 1946 (same year, as Jeffreys prior) In 1948 (same year as Shannon paper)

9. Statistical manifolds can be studied by setting any arbitrary Riemannian metric. Who proved using geometric category arguments that the Fisher information matrix is up to a constant the only Riemmanian metric that ensure invariance by reparameterization (Markov morphisms), and when? Amari in 1982 Chentsov in 1972 Hellinger in 1908 Chernoff in 1962

10. In the popular class of f-divergences, what is the only metric f-divergence? Euclidean distance Chi-squared distance total variation distance Jensen-Shannon distance
