This is the Windows app named Annoy whose latest release can be downloaded as 1.17.0-multithreadedbuilding+miscmore.zip. It can be run online in the free hosting provider OnWorks for workstations.
Download and run online this app named Annoy with OnWorks for free.
Follow these instructions in order to run this app:
- 1. Downloaded this application in your PC.
- 2. Enter in our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.
- 3. Upload this application in such filemanager.
- 4. Start any OS OnWorks online emulator from this website, but better Windows online emulator.
- 5. From the OnWorks Windows OS you have just started, goto our file manager https://www.onworks.net/myfiles.php?username=XXXXX with the username that you want.
- 6. Download the application and install it.
- 7. Download Wine from your Linux distributions software repositories. Once installed, you can then double-click the app to run them with Wine. You can also try PlayOnLinux, a fancy interface over Wine that will help you install popular Windows programs and games.
Wine is a way to run Windows software on Linux, but with no Windows required. Wine is an open-source Windows compatibility layer that can run Windows programs directly on any Linux desktop. Essentially, Wine is trying to re-implement enough of Windows from scratch so that it can run all those Windows applications without actually needing Windows.
Annoy (Approximate Nearest Neighbors Oh Yeah) is a C++ library with Python bindings to search for points in space that are close to a given query point. It also creates large read-only file-based data structures that are mmapped into memory so that many processes may share the same data. There are some other libraries to do nearest neighbor search. Annoy is almost as fast as the fastest libraries, (see below), but there is actually another feature that really sets Annoy apart: it has the ability to use static files as indexes. In particular, this means you can share index across processes. Annoy also decouples creating indexes from loading them, so you can pass around indexes as files and map them into memory quickly. Another nice thing of Annoy is that it tries to minimize memory footprint so the indexes are quite small.
- If you want to find nearest neighbors and you have many CPU's, you only need to build the index once
- You can also pass around and distribute static files to use in production environment
- Any process will be able to load (mmap) the index into memory and will be able to do lookups immediately
- After running matrix factorization algorithms, every user/item can be represented as a vector in f-dimensional space
- Build index on disk to enable indexing big datasets that won't fit into memory
- Lets you share memory between multiple processes
This is an application that can also be fetched from https://sourceforge.net/projects/annoy.mirror/. It has been hosted in OnWorks in order to be run online in an easiest way from one of our free Operative Systems.
