Information distance is used to measure how similar sensorimotor experience is to past experience--within a certain temporal horizon. Applied to groups--of sensors this gives a mathematical metric on sensorimotor experience over time. We show that for complex data from a robot, large scale similarity of experience can be discovered from the robot perspective, providing a means of building an experiential interaction history.
