    Non-Metric Space Library (NMSLIB): An efficient similarity search library and a toolkit for evaluation of k-NN methods for generic non-metric spaces.

    I also needed to build a similar system and I used nmslib, maybe check it out -

  • TorchPQ

    Efficient implementations of Product Quantization and its variants using Pytorch and CUDA

    If you're using GPU for search, You can give TorchPQ a try, it's an ANN search library implemented with PyTorch and CUDA. with TorchPQ, you can freely add / remove vectors with IDs, you can save/load them just like a regular PyTorch model. TorchPQ is still in development, and I'd love to hear any suggestion or feedback.
