Abstract : How-to train effective classifiers on huge amount of multimedia data is clearly a major challenge that is attracting more and more research works across several communities. Less efforts however are spent on the counterpart scalability issue: how to apply big trained models efficiently on huge non annotated media collections ? In this paper, we address the problem of speeding-up the prediction phase of linear Support Vector Machines via Locality Sensitive Hashing. We propose building efficient hash based classifiers that are applied in a first stage in order to approximate the exact results and filter the hypothesis space. Experiments performed with millions of one-against-one classifiers show that the proposed hash-based classifier can be more than two orders of magnitude faster than the exact classifier with minor losses in quality.
