Similarity Search with Tensor Core Units

22 Jun 2020  ·  Thomas D. Ahle, Francesco Silvestri ·

Tensor Core Units (TCUs) are hardware accelerators developed for deep neural networks, which efficiently support the multiplication of two dense $\sqrt{m}\times \sqrt{m}$ matrices, where $m$ is a given hardware parameter. In this paper, we show that TCUs can speed up similarity search problems as well. We propose algorithms for the Johnson-Lindenstrauss dimensionality reduction and for similarity join that, by leveraging TCUs, achieve a $\sqrt{m}$ speedup up with respect to traditional approaches.
