Slides for Nearest Neighbors
Nearest neighbor (NN) and approximate nearest neighbor (ANN) algorithms
Great Locality Sensitive Hashing slides
Python LSH and ANN packages
Q: how do I use the LSH packages?
A: A great way to get started using any new package is to try to find someone else's work and see how they used it. Below is one example for LSHash. It was found by googling
lshash tutorial and, **even though it's not a tutorial, it appeared.
There is a short slide deck that describes the overall project, and the github repository that holds the project code. LSHash is called in the function
get_subevent() in the file parser.py.
