Fuzzy Agglomerative Clustering
Artificial Intelligence and Soft Computing (2015)
In this paper, we describe fuzzy agglomerative clustering, a brand new fuzzy clustering algorithm. The basic idea of the proposed algorithm is based on the well-known hierarchical clustering methods. To achieve the soft or fuzzy output of the hierarchical clustering, we combine the single-linkage and complete-linkage strategy together with a fuzzy distance. As the algorithm was created recently, we cover only some basic experiments on synthetic data to show some properties of the algorithm. The reference implementation is freely available.
