Why isn't cosine similarity implemented?

(Daniel Peixoto) #1

I'm conducting a research using elasticsearch. I was planning to use cosine similarity but I noted that it is unavailable and instead we have BM25 as default scoring function.
Is there a reason for that? Is cosine similarity improper for querying documents? Why was BM25 chosen as default?
Thanks
