Star-Structured High-Order Heterogeneous Data Co-clustering Based on Consistent Information Theory
Heterogeneous object co-clustering has become an important research topic in data mining. In early years of this research, people mainly worked on two types of heterogeneous data (denoted by pair-wise co-clustering); while recently more and more attention was paid to multiple types of heterogeneous data (denoted by high-order co-clustering). In this paper, the authors studied the high-order co-clustering of objects with star-structured interrelationship, i.e., there is a central type of objects that connects the other types of objects. Actually, this case could be a very good model for many real-world applications, such as the co-clustering of web images, their low-level visual features, and the surrounding text.
