Clustering with Weka

Clustering with Weka

Clustering with Weka

Hi everyone and happy new year!

I have to analyse a data set with weka clustering, using 3 clustering algorithms and I need to provide a comparison between them about their performance and suitability. The comparison may include a description about how to adjust parameter values of the clustering algorithms to make them perform better. The three algorithms are SimpleKmeans, DBSCAN and HierarchicalClusterer.

So, my questions are: What kind of variables do I need to look at when measuring performance and suitability? The one that I managed to find so far is Within cluster sum of squared errors. And also, which parameter values do I need to adjust in order to make the algorithms perform better?


RE: Clustering with Weka

When do you need to have this situation solved? It seems like you have plenty of time to research the appropriate algorithms on the internet. smile
