- Billion-scale similarity search with GPUs (11 Aug 2023)
This is my reading note on Billion-scale similarity search with GPUs. FAISS (Facebook AI Similarity Search) is an open-source library that allows developers to quickly search for similar embeddings of multimedia documents. FAISS uses indexing structures like LSH, IVF, and PQ to speed up the search. It also supports GPUs, which can further accelerate the search. FAISS was developed by Facebook AI Research (FAIR).
