bufferkdtree: a Python library for massive nearest neighbor queries on multi-many-core devices
Research output: Contribution to journal › Journal article
The bufferkdtree package is an open-source software that provides an efficient implementation for processing huge amounts of nearest neighbor queries in Euclidean spaces of moderate dimensionality. Its underlying implementation resorts to a variant of the classical k-d tree data structure, called buffer k-d tree, which can be used to efficiently perform bulk nearest neighbor searches on modern many-core devices. The package, which is based on Python, C, and OpenCL, is made publicly available online at https://github.com/gieseke/bufferkdtree under the GPLv2 license.
