LSHForest
(n_estimators=10, radius=1.0, n_candidates=50, n_neighbors=5, min_hash_match=4, radius_cutoff_ratio=0.9, random_state=None)[source]¶ Performs approximate nearest neighbor search using LSH forest.
LSH Forest: Locality Sensitive Hashing forest [1] is an alternative method for vanilla approximate nearest neighbor search methods. LSH forest data structure has been implemented using sorted arrays and binary search and 32 bit fixedlength hashes. Random projection is used as the hash family which approximates cosine distance.
The cosine distance is defined as
1  cosine_similarity
: the lowest value is 0 (identical point) but it is bounded above by 2 for the farthest points. Its value does not depend on the norm of the vector points but only on their relative angles.Read more in the User Guide.
Parameters: n_estimators : int (default = 10)
Number of trees in the LSH Forest.
min_hash_match : int (default = 4)
lowest hash length to be searched when candidate selection is performed for nearest neighbors.
n_candidates : int (default = 10)
Minimum number of candidates evaluated per estimator, assuming enough items meet the min_hash_match constraint.
n_neighbors : int (default = 5)
Number of neighbors to be returned from query function when it is not provided to the
kneighbors
method.radius : float, optinal (default = 1.0)
Radius from the data point to its neighbors. This is the parameter space to use by default for the :meth`radius_neighbors` queries.
radius_cutoff_ratio : float, optional (default = 0.9)
A value ranges from 0 to 1. Radius neighbors will be searched until the ratio between total neighbors within the radius and the total candidates becomes less than this value unless it is terminated by hash length reaching min_hash_match.
random_state : int, RandomState instance or None, optional (default=None)
If int, random_state is the seed used by the random number generator; If RandomState instance, random_state is the random number generator; If None, the random number generator is the RandomState instance used by np.random.
Attributes: hash_functions_ : list of GaussianRandomProjectionHash objects
Hash function g(p,x) for a tree is an array of 32 randomly generated float arrays with the same dimension as the data set. This array is stored in GaussianRandomProjectionHash object and can be obtained from
components_
attribute.trees_ : array, shape (n_estimators, n_samples)
Each tree (corresponding to a hash function) contains an array of sorted hashed values. The array representation may change in future versions.
original_indices_ : array, shape (n_estimators, n_samples)
Original indices of sorted hashed values in the fitted index.

fit
(X, y=None)[source]¶ Fit the LSH forest on the data.
This creates binary hashes of input data points by getting the dot product of input points and hash_function then transforming the projection into a binary string array based on the sign (positive/negative) of the projection. A sorted array of binary hashes is created.
Parameters: X : array_like or sparse (CSR) matrix, shape (n_samples, n_features)
List of n_featuresdimensional data points. Each row corresponds to a single data point.
Returns: self : object
Returns self.

get_params
(deep=True)[source]¶ Get parameters for this estimator.
Parameters: deep : boolean, optional
If True, will return the parameters for this estimator and contained subobjects that are estimators.
Returns: params : mapping of string to any
Parameter names mapped to their values.

kneighbors
(X, n_neighbors=None, return_distance=True)[source]¶ Returns n_neighbors of approximate nearest neighbors.
Parameters: X : array_like or sparse (CSR) matrix, shape (n_samples, n_features)
List of n_featuresdimensional data points. Each row corresponds to a single query.
n_neighbors : int, opitonal (default = None)
Number of neighbors required. If not provided, this will return the number specified at the initialization.
return_distance : boolean, optional (default = True)
Returns the distances of neighbors if set to True.
Returns: dist : array, shape (n_samples, n_neighbors)
Array representing the cosine distances to each point, only present if return_distance=True.
ind : array, shape (n_samples, n_neighbors)
Indices of the approximate nearest points in the population matrix.

kneighbors_graph
(X=None, n_neighbors=None, mode='connectivity')[source]¶ Computes the (weighted) graph of kNeighbors for points in X
Parameters: X : arraylike, shape (n_query, n_features), or (n_query, n_indexed) if metric == ‘precomputed’
The query point or points. If not provided, neighbors of each indexed point are returned. In this case, the query point is not considered its own neighbor.
n_neighbors : int
Number of neighbors for each sample. (default is value passed to the constructor).
mode : {‘connectivity’, ‘distance’}, optional
Type of returned matrix: ‘connectivity’ will return the connectivity matrix with ones and zeros, in ‘distance’ the edges are Euclidean distance between points.
