Nearest neighbor search

Nearest Neighbor Search

Given points in a metric space

Preprocess into a small data structure

Given a query point

Quickly retrieve the closest to

Many Applications


Decision version given search radius r

Decision Version. Given search radius r

  • Find a point in distance r of query point

  • Relation to Approximate NNS:

    • If second neighbor is at distance cr

    • Then this is also a c-approximate NN

r

cr


Cell probe model

Cell Probe Model

Preprocess into data structure with

  • words

  • bits per word

    Query algorithm gets charged t

    if it probes words of

  • All computation is free

Lower bounds from expansion

Lower bounds from Expansion

Show a unified approach for proving cell probe lower bounds for near neighbor and other similar problems.

Show that all lower bounds stem from the same combinatorial property of the metric space

Expansion : |number of points near A|/|A|

(show some new lower bounds)


Graphical nearest neighbor

Graphical Nearest Neighbor

  • Convert metric space to Graph

  • Place an edge if nodes are within distance r

  • Return a neighbor of the query. Now r=1


Graphical nearest neighbor1

Graphical Nearest Neighbor

  • Assume uniform degree

  • Use a random data set

  • Assume W.h.p the n balls are disjoint.

Example application

Example Application

n.exp(ϵ2d)


Proof idea when t 1 shattering

Proof Idea when t=1 Shattering

  • F : V → [m] partitions V into m regions

  • Split large regions

  • A random ball is shattered into many parts: about ф(G)

  • ф(G) replication in space


Proof idea when t 1

Proof Idea when t=1

  • determines which cell in is read

  • Select a fraction of cells such

  • it is likely that cantains a quarter of the data set points

  • So, and


Generalizing for larger t

Generalizing for larger t

  • Select a fraction of each table such

  • Continue as before

    • Non adaptive algorithms

  • Adaptive alg. depend upon content of selected cells

    • Subexp. number of algs

    • Union bound


Randomized bounds

Randomized Bounds

  • So far we assumed the algorithm is correct on

    • What if only of are good query point?

Need to relax the definition of vertex expansion


Randomized bounds1

Randomized Bounds

  • Robust Expansion

  • N(A) captures all edges from A

  • Expansion =|N(A)|/|A|

  • Capture only ¾ of the edges from A

A

N(A)


Robust exapnsion

Robust Exapnsion

  • Small set vertex expansion:

  • In other words:We can cover all the edges incident on with a set of size

  • We can cover of the edges incident on with a set of size

    • Robust expansion is at least the edge expansion


Bound for randomized data structure

Bound for Randomized Data Structure

  • Theorem: if is weakly Independent, then a randomized data structure that answers GNS queries with space and queries must satisfy and


Proof idea when t 1 shattering1

Proof Idea when t=1 Shattering

  • Most of a random ball is shattered into many parts: about фr

  • фr replication in space


Generalizing for larger t1

Generalizing for larger t

  • Sample 1/фr1/t fraction from each table.

  • A random ball, good part survives in all tables.

  • Union bound for adaptive is trickier.


Applications

Applications

  • We know how to calculate robust expansion of graphs derived from:

    • when (known)

    • when (new)

    • when (natural input dist.)

  • Don’t know the robust expansion of:

    • when


General upper bound

General Upper Bound

  • Say is a Cayley Graph

  • Take

  • Take with r.e.

  • Use random translations of to define the access function

  • For rand. input success prob. is constant


Conclusions and open problems

Conclusions and Open Problems

Unified approach to NNS cell probe lower bounds

  • often characterized by expansion

  • Average case with natural distributions

  • Higher lower bounds?

    • Improve dependency on (very hard)

    • Dynamic NNS, tight bound for special cases shown in the paper

    Proof idea

    Proof Idea

    • Can we plug the new definitions in the old proof?

      • Conceptually – yes!

      • Actually….well no

    • Dependencies everywhere – the set of good neighbors of a data point depends upon the rest of the data set

    • Solving this is the technical crux of the paper
