Clustering Large Data with Mixed Values Using Extended Fuzzy Adaptive Resonance Theory

Asadi Srinivasulu, Gadupudi Dakshayani


Clustering is one of the technique or approach in content mining and it is used for grouping similar items. Clustering software datasets with mixed values is a major challenge in clustering applications. The previous work deals with unsupervised feature learning techniques such as k-Means and C-Means which cannot be able to process the mixed type of data. There are several drawbacks in the previous work such as cluster tendency, partitioning, less accuracy and less performance. To overcome all those problems the extended fuzzy adaptive resonance theory (EFART) came into existence which indicates that the usage of fuzzy ART with some traditional approach. This work deals with mixed type of data by applying unsupervised feature learning for achieving the sparse representation to make it easier for clustering algorithms to separate the data. The advantages of extended fuzzy adaptive resonance theory are high accuracy, high performance, good partitioning, and good cluster tendency. This EFART adopts unsupervised feature learning which helps to cluster the large data sets like the teaching assistant evaluation, iris and the wine datasets. Finally, the obtained results may consist of clusters which are formed based on the similarity of their attribute type and values.
