High-Dimensional Similarity Search for Large Datasets

Wei DongPhD CandidatePrinceton University

Images and other non-text feature-rich data are predominant in today's
exponentially growing digital universe.How to organize such data at
large scale for efficient content-based search is an important problem
which remains open after decades of research.One major challenge is that
the feature data are usually of high dimensionality and are
intrinsically hard to search due to the curse of dimensionality.In this
talk, I will present an exciting progress we recently made at Princeton,
namely an efficient method to construct a data structure called a
k-nearest neighbor graph, which can be used to substantially improve
online search.I will also briefly talk about our work on compact data
representation for similarity search and on large-scale near-duplicate
image detection.

Wei Dong obtained a B.S. from Peking University in 2005 and is now
completing his Ph.D. at Princeton with Prof. Kai Li.His research focuses
on k-nearest neighbor search in high-dimensional spaces.
