Data Structures for Density Estimation

1 code implementation20 Jun 2023 Anders Aamand, Alexandr Andoni, Justin Y. Chen, Piotr Indyk, Shyam Narayanan, Sandeep Silwal

We study statistical/computational tradeoffs for the following density estimation problem: given $k$ distributions $v_1, \ldots, v_k$ over a discrete domain of size $n$, and sampling access to a distribution $p$, identify $v_i$ that is "close" to $p$.

Learning to Hash Robustly, Guaranteed

no code implementations11 Aug 2021 Alexandr Andoni, Daniel Beaglehole

In this paper, we design an NNS algorithm for the Hamming space that has worst-case guarantees essentially matching that of theoretical algorithms, while optimizing the hashing to the structure of the dataset (think instance-optimal algorithms) for performance on the minimum-performing query.

Streaming Complexity of SVMs

no code implementations7 Jul 2020 Alexandr Andoni, Collin Burns, Yi Li, Sepideh Mahabadi, David P. Woodruff

We show that, for both problems, for dimensions $d=1, 2$, one can obtain streaming algorithms with space polynomially smaller than $\frac{1}{\lambda\epsilon}$, which is the complexity of SGD for strongly convex functions like the bias-regularized SVM, and which is known to be tight in general, even for $d=1$.

Approximate Nearest Neighbor Search in High Dimensions

no code implementations26 Jun 2018 Alexandr Andoni, Piotr Indyk, Ilya Razenshteyn

The nearest neighbor problem is defined as follows: Given a set $P$ of $n$ points in some metric space $(X, D)$, build a data structure that, given any point $q$, returns a point in $P$ that is closest to $q$ (its "nearest neighbor" in $P$).

Subspace Embedding and Linear Regression with Orlicz Norm

no code implementations ICML 2018 Alexandr Andoni, Chengyu Lin, Ying Sheng, Peilin Zhong, Ruiqi Zhong

An Orlicz norm is parameterized by a non-negative convex function $G:\mathbb{R}_+\rightarrow\mathbb{R}_+$ with $G(0)=0$: the Orlicz norm of a vector $x\in\mathbb{R}^n$ is defined as $ \|x\|_G=\inf\left\{\alpha>0\large\mid\sum_{i=1}^n G(|x_i|/\alpha)\leq 1\right\}.


Approximate Near Neighbors for General Symmetric Norms

no code implementations18 Nov 2016 Alexandr Andoni, Huy L. Nguyen, Aleksandar Nikolov, Ilya Razenshteyn, Erik Waingarten

We show that every symmetric normed space admits an efficient nearest neighbor search data structure with doubly-logarithmic approximation.

Practical and Optimal LSH for Angular Distance

1 code implementation NeurIPS 2015 Alexandr Andoni, Piotr Indyk, Thijs Laarhoven, Ilya Razenshteyn, Ludwig Schmidt

Our lower bound implies that the above LSH family exhibits a trade-off between evaluation time and quality that is close to optimal for a natural class of LSH functions.

A Differential Equations Approach to Optimizing Regret Trade-offs

no code implementations7 May 2013 Alexandr Andoni, Rina Panigrahy

To obtain our main result, we show that the optimal payoff functions have to satisfy the Hermite differential equation, and hence are given by the solutions to this equation.
