An Effective Evolutionary Clustering Algorithm:Hepatitis C Case Study
Clustering analysis plays an important role in scientific research and commercial application. K-means algorithm is a widely used partition method in clustering. However, it is known that the K-means algorithm may get stuck at suboptimal solutions, depending on the choice of the initial cluster centers. In this paper, the authors propose a technique to handle large scale data, which can select initial clustering center purposefully using Genetic Algorithms (GAs), reduce the sensitivity to isolated point, avoid dissevering big cluster, and overcome deflexion of data in some degree that caused by the disproportion in data partitioning owing to adoption of multi-sampling.
