A New Method for Dimensionality Reduction Using KMeans Clustering Algorithm for High Dimensional Data Set

Clustering is the process of finding groups of objects such that the objects in a group will be similar to one another and different from the objects in other groups. Dimensionality reduction is the transformation of high-dimensional data into a meaningful representation of reduced dimensionality that corresponds to the intrinsic dimensionality of the data. K-means clustering algorithm often does not work well for high dimension, hence, to improve the efficiency, apply PCA on original data set and obtain a reduced dataset containing possibly uncorrelated variables. In this paper principal component analysis and linear transformation is used for dimensionality reduction and initial centroid is computed, then it is applied to K-Means clustering algorithm.
