Throughout the library, vectors are provided as float * pointers. Most algorithms can be optimized when several vectors are processed (added/searched) together in a batch. In this case, they are passed in as a matrix. When n vectors of size d are provided as float * x, component j of vector i is

x[ i * d + j ]

where 0 <= i < n and 0 <= j < d. In other words, matrices are always compact. When specifying the size of the matrix, we call it an n*d matrix, which implies a row-major storage.

This source code is licensed under the MIT license found in the LICENSE file in the root directory of this source tree. Since IVF (inverted file) indexes are of so much use for large-scale use cases, we group a few functions related to them in this small library. Most functions work both on IndexIVFs and IndexIVFs embedded within an IndexPreTransform.

struct IndexIVFSpectralHash : public faiss::IndexIVF
#include <IndexIVFSpectralHash.h>

Inverted list that stores binary codes of size nbit. Before the binary conversion, the dimension of the vectors is transformed from dim d into dim nbit by vt (a random rotation by default).

Each coordinate is subtracted from a value determined by threshold_type, and split into intervals of size period. Half of the interval is a 0 bit, the other half a 1.

Public Types

enum ThresholdType

Values:

enumerator Thresh_global

global threshold at 0

enumerator Thresh_centroid

compare to centroid

enumerator Thresh_centroid_half

central interval around centroid

enumerator Thresh_median

median of training set

Public Functions

IndexIVFSpectralHash(Index *quantizer, size_t d, size_t nlist, int nbit, float period)
IndexIVFSpectralHash()
virtual void train_residual(idx_t n, const float *x) override

Sub-classes that encode the residuals can train their encoders here does nothing by default

virtual void encode_vectors(idx_t n, const float *x, const idx_t *list_nos, uint8_t *codes, bool include_listnos = false) const override

Encodes a set of vectors as they would appear in the inverted lists

Parameters
  • list_nos – inverted list ids as returned by the quantizer (size n). -1s are ignored.

  • codes – output codes, size n * code_size

  • include_listno – include the list ids in the code (in this case add ceil(log8(nlist)) to the code size)

virtual InvertedListScanner *get_InvertedListScanner(bool store_pairs) const override

Get a scanner for this index (store_pairs means ignore labels)

The default search implementation uses this to compute the distances

void replace_vt(VectorTransform *vt, bool own = false)

replace the vector transform for an empty (and possibly untrained) index

void replace_vt(IndexPreTransform *index, bool own = false)

convenience function to get the VT from an index constucted by an index_factory (should end in “LSH”)

~IndexIVFSpectralHash() override

Public Members

VectorTransform *vt

transformation from d to nbit dim

bool own_fields

own the vt

int nbit

nb of bits of the binary signature

float period

interval size for 0s and 1s

ThresholdType threshold_type
std::vector<float> trained

Trained threshold. size nlist * nbit or 0 if Thresh_global
