Abstract

In this paper, a partial supervision strategy for a recently developed clustering algorithm NNCA (Salem et al., 2006), Nearest Neighbour Clustering Algorithm, is proposed. The proposed method (NNCA-PS) offers classification capability with smaller amount of a priori knowledge, where a small number of data objects from the entire dataset are used as labelled objects to guide the clustering process towards a better search space. Results from the proposed supervision method indicate its robustness in classification compared with other classifiers.
