Anchor Graph Hashing in Python

Update 11/7/2019: The github repo was renamed from PyAnchorGraphHasher to aghasher. The library is now available on PyPI, the Python Package Index. It can be installed with pip.

$ pip install aghasher

I was recently collaborating on a project that relied on hashing (where I’m referring to “hashing” the same way it’s used in locality sensitive hashing, as opposed to its more conventional usage). One of my contributions was an implementation of Anchor Graph Hashing (AGH) [1] in Python. The code was integrated into the project, but I’ve uploaded the AGH module to its own separate GitHub repository.
