Motivation Almost all subspace clustering algorithms proposed so far are designed for numeric datasets.
Objectives • This paper present a k-means type clustering algorithm that finds clusters in data subspaces in mixed numeric and categorical datasets.
Methodology • k-means clustering algorithm • Place K points into the space represented by the objects that are being clustered. These points represent initial group centroids. • Assign each object to the group that has the closest centroid. • When all objects have been assigned, recalculate the positions of the K centroids. • Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until the centroids no longer move. This produces a separation of the objects into groups from which the metric to be minimized can be calculated.
