    > Problem statement: the Levenshtein distance is a string metric for measuring the difference between two sequences

    Another variant is "I have a bunch of words (a dictionary) and one query word, and want to find all words from the dictionary that are close to the query word".

    This leads to an interesting class of problems, because you can do clever things where you precompute search structures (Levenshtein automata [0]) from the dictionary. The similarity queries then run (much) faster – in production, performance matters.

    We recently merged a PR like that into Gensim [1].

    This gave a ~1,500x speed-up compared to naively comparing all pairwise strings with Levenshtein distance. A difference between the training step running for years (=unusable) and minutes.



  • Superior tools to Gensim's similarity
    So Gensim's Similarity module seems like a good fit for this problem, especially soft cosine similarity checking. But inside I can't get comfortable, because transformers are very popular lately.
