The vector search and clustering algorithms in RAFT are being migrated to a new library dedicated to vector search called cuVS. We will continue to support the vector search algorithms in RAFT during this move, but will no longer update them after the RAPIDS 24.06 (June) release. We plan to complete the migration by RAPIDS 24.08 (August) release.


This page provides C++ class references for the publicly-exposed elements of the raft/core package. The raft/core headers require minimal dependencies, can be compiled without nvcc, and thus are safe to expose on your own public APIs. Aside from the headers in the raft/core include directory, any headers in the codebase with the suffix _types.hpp are also safe to expose in public APIs.
