Abstract

In this paper, a new data-driven autonomous fuzzy clustering (AFC) algorithm is proposed for static data clustering. Employing a Gaussian-type membership function, AFC firstly uses all the data samples as micro-cluster medoids to assign memberships to each other and obtains the membership matrix. Based on this, AFC chooses these data samples that represent local models of data distribution as cluster medoids for initial partition. It then continues to optimize the cluster medoids iteratively to obtain a locally optimal partition as the algorithm output. Moreover, an online extension is introduced to AFC enabling the algorithm to cluster streaming data chunk-by-chunk in a one pass manner. Numerical examples based on a variety of benchmark problems demonstrate the efficacy of the AFC algorithm in both offline and online application scenarios, proving the effectiveness and validity of the proposed concept and general principles.
