This paper presents adaptive and non-adaptive fuzzy c-means clustering methods for partitioning symbolic interval data. The proposed methods furnish a fuzzy partition and prototype for each cluster by optimizing an adequacy criterion based on suitable squared Euclidean distances between vectors of intervals. Moreover, various cluster interpretation tools(More)
This paper introduces a new approach to fitting a linear regression model to symbolic interval data. Each example of the learning set is described by a feature vector, for which each feature value is an interval. The new method fits a linear regression model on the mid-points and ranges of the interval values assumed by the variables in the learning set.(More)
This paper presents a partitional dynamic clustering method for interval data based on adaptive Hausdorff distances. Dynamic clustering algorithms are iterative two-step relocation algorithms involving the construction of the clusters at each iteration and the identification of a suitable representation or prototype (means, axes, probability laws, groups of(More)
The selection of a good model for forecasting a time series is a task that involves experience and knowledge. Employing machine learning algorithms is a promising approach to acquiring knowledge in regards to this task. A supervised classification method originating from the symbolic data analysis field is proposed for the model selection problem. This(More)
