Binary embedding is the problem of mapping points from a high-dimensional space to a Hamming cube in lower dimension while preserving pairwise distances. An efficient way to accomplish this is to make use of fast embedding techniques involving Fourier transform e.g. circulant matrices. While binary embedding has been studied extensively, theoretical results on fast binary embedding are rather limited. In this work, we build upon the recent literature to obtain significantly better dependencies on the problem parameters. A set of N points in ℝ^n can be properly embedded into the Hamming cube {±1}^k with δ distortion, by using k ∼ δ^−3 log N samples which is optimal in the number of points N and compares well with the optimal distortion dependency δ^−2. Our optimal embedding result applies in the regime log N ≲ n^(1/3). Furthermore, if the looser condition log N ≲ √n holds, we show that all but an arbitrarily small fraction of the points can be optimally embedded. We believe the proposed techniques can be useful to obtain improved guarantees for other nonlinear embedding problems.
