Paper Abstract

A new data clustering algorithm using a self organizing method is presented. This algorithm forms clusters and is trained without supervision. The clustering is done on the basis of the statistical properties of the set of data. This algorithm differs from the K-means algorithm and other clustering algorithms in that the number of desired clusters is not required to be known a priori. It also removes noise and is fast. The convergence of the algorithm is shown. An example is given to show the application of the algorithm to clustering data and to compare the results obtained using this algorithm with those obtained using the K-means algorithm.
