Recently, I have been co-organizing a similarity search challenge involving LAION clip embeddings.
The challenge will be a particular track of the SISAP2023 conference, to be held in La Coruña, España. You can find more information about it.
I know there are several approximate nearest neighbor algorithms in Julia (in addition to mine), and it would be great to see different Julia packages in the challenge (I put the
SimilaritySearch.jl) as an example if someone wants to use it or use it as a template for participation.
The call is not only for approximate nearest neighbor algorithms but also accepts contributions on algorithms that impact the similarity search procedure (e.g., dimensional reduction algorithms)
