Description: # nanopq

[![Documentation Status](https://readthedocs.org/projects/nanopq/badge/?version=latest)](https://nanopq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/?badge=latest)

Nano Product Quantization (nanopq): product quantization for nearest neighbor search in a single python file.

This package contains a vanilla implementation of Product Quantization (PQ) and Optimized Product Quantization (OPQ) written in pure python without any third party dependencies.


## Installing
You can install the package via pip. This library works with Python 3.6+ on linux.
```
pip install nanopq
```

## [Documentation](https://nanopq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html)
- [Tutorial](https://nanopq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/tutorial.html)
- [API](https://nanopq.readthedocs.io/en/latest/api.html)

## Example

```python
import nanopq
import numpy as np

X = np.random.random((10000, 128))
query = np.random.random((128,))

# Instantiate with M=8 sub-spaces
pq = nanopq.PQ(M=8)

# Train with the top 1000 vectors
pq.fit(X[:1000])

# Encode to pq-codes
X_code = pq.encode(X) # (10000, 8) with dtype=np.uint8

# Results
dtable = pq.dtable(query) # Compute a distance table online
dists = pq.adist(dtable, X_code) # Asymmetric distance
```
