Clustering algorithms aim at modeling fuzzy (i.e., ambiguous) unlabeled patterns efficiently. Our goal is to propose a theoretical framework where the expressive power of clustering systems can be compared on the basis of a meaningful set of common functional features. Part I of this paper reviews the following issues related to clustering approaches found(More)
This paper deals with the problem of badly posed image classification. Although underestimated in practice, bad-posedness is likely to affect many real-world image classification tasks, where reference samples are difficult to collect (e.g., in remote sensing (RS) image mapping) and/or spatial autocorrelation is relevant. In an image classification context(More)
The Simpliied Adaptive Resonance Theory (SART) class of networks is proposed to handle problems encountered in Adaptive Resonance Theory 1 (ART 1)-based algorithms when detection of binary and analog patterns is performed. The basic idea of SART is to substitute ART 1-based \unidirectional" (asymmetric) activation and match functions with \bidirectional"(More)
is intermediate between those (low) of clusters and segments and those (high) of land cover classes (e.g., forest). This means that the application domain of the kernel spectral strata is by no means alternative to RS data clustering, image segmentation, and land cover classification. Rather, prior knowledge-based kernel spectral categories are naturally(More)
