Building k-nn graphs from large text data

In this paper we present our new design of NNCTPH, a scalable algorithm to build an approximate k-NN graph from large text datasets. The algorithm uses a modified version of Context Triggered Piecewise Hashing to bin the input data into buckets, and uses NN-Descent, a versatile graph-building algorithm, inside each bucket. We use datasets consisting of the… CONTINUE READING
