Neighbourhood Preserving Quantisation for LSH

Current version: 0.1. Distributed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial License: http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/4.0/deed.en_US

This code is an implementation of the Neighbourhood Preserving Quantisation (NPQ) model introduced in the paper:

Sean Moran, Victor Lavrenko and Miles Osborne. Neighbourhood Preserving Quantisation for LSH. SIGIR, 2013

Prerequisites:

  1. Matlab

If you use the NPQ code for a publication, please cite the following paper:

Usage

  1. Obtain the pre-processed dataset files for MNIST, CIFAR-10 and NUSWIDE here: https://www.dropbox.com/sh/pvso066sqd2z8ja/AABu7dxMx92lhlLLXLUpg_jMa?dl=0

  2. Edit the properties in initialise.m to fit your system and requirements (e.g. hashcode length, dataset, amount of supervision, paths to datasets and results directory etc).

  3. run_quant.m
