How do you calculate cosine on a subset of vectors in a vector index?

Documents

1M -> 10000 -> 100 -> 10

64D -> 128D -> 256D -> 512D (D - vector dimension)

FAISS and ANNOY don't support it.

You can do a filter by ID in Elasticsearch and then run cosine query, but should you?

First search on 1M docs in FAISS with ANN(approximate nearest neighbours) and rest passes on ES.

Is numpy masked array a solution for this?
