The Akaike information criterion (AIC) is a widely used tool for model selection. AIC is derived as an asymptotically unbiased estimator of a function used for ranking candidate models which is a variant of the Kullback-Leibler divergence between the true model and the approximating candidate model. Despite the Kullback-Leibler's computational and theoretical advantages, what can become inconvenient in model selection applications is their lack of symmetry. Simple examples can show that...[Show more]
