When assessing the similarity of two vectors, is it correct to sum the differences between each value pair and treat this as a distance measure? For example:

let v1 = [.1,.2,.3…];

let v2 = [.1,-.5,3…];

let dist = 0.0;

for (let i = 0; i<v1.length; i++){

dist + = Math.Abs(v1[i] - v2[i]);

}

Is dist a measure of the semantic difference between the two embeddings?
