I am reading about mutual information dependency measures. I found that it ranges from $0$ to infinity.

I have one simple question. How can I measure the strength of the dependency using this method? For example, Kendall's $\tau$ ranges from $-1$ to $1$, and we can simply understand the strength of the dependency. What is the corresponding interpretation of mutual information?
