In this paper we present an original approach for finding approximate nearest neighbours in collections of locality-sensitive hashes. The paper demonstrates that this approach makes high-performance nearest-neighbour searching feasible on Web-scale collections and commodity hardware with minimal degradation in search quality.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
