  • Patent number: 11500887
    Abstract: Technologies for tuning performance and/or accuracy of similarity search using stochastic associative memories (SAM). Under a first subsampling approach, columns associated with set bits in a search key comprising a binary bit vector are subsampled. Matching set bits for the subsampled columns are aggregated on a row-wise basis to generate similarity scores, which are then ranked. A similar scheme is applied for all the columns with set bits in the search key and the results for top ranked rows are compared to evaluate a tradeoff between throughput boost versus lost accuracy. A second approach called continuous column read, and iterative approach is employed that continuously scores the rows as each new column read is complete. The similarity scores for an N-1 and Nth-1 iteration are ranked, a rank correlation is calculated, and a determination is made to whether the rank correlation meets or exceeds a threshold.
