A New Clustering Boids Algorithm for Data Mining

  title={A New Clustering Boids Algorithm for Data Mining},
  author={M. David and Leandro Nunes de Castro},
This paper presents a multi-agent flocking approach for data clustering. The new algorithm, called cBoids, is proposed based on the classic Boids model with a few changes on the Boids behavior. In this new algorithm, each Boid represents an object from the database and the original three rules from the Boids model were changed so that the values in the database have influence on their behavior and two other rules were added. The new rules are responsible for the creation and destruction of…

Dynamically Adaptive Data Clustering Using Intelligent Swarm-like Agents

A novel clustering method, the PSDC, a new Particle Swarm-like agents approach for Dynamically Adaptive data clustering, which does not require initial partitioned seeds and it can dynamically adapt to the changes in the global shape or size of the clusters.

Data clustering: a review

An overview of pattern clustering methods from a statistical pattern recognition perspective is presented, with a goal of providing useful advice and references to fundamental concepts accessible to the broad community of clustering practitioners.

An evolutionary immune network for data clustering

A novel immune network model is proposed with the main goals of clustering and filtering unlabelled numerical data sets, and a trade-off between the proposed network and artificial neural networks used to perform unsupervised learning is concluded.

Flocks, herds, and schools: a distributed behavioral model

This paper explores an approach based on simulation as an alternative to scripting the paths of each bird individually, an elaboration of a particle system, with the simulated birds being the particles.


Ant-based and swarm-based clustering

There are two main types of ant-based clustering: the first group of methods directly mimics the clustering behavior observed in real ant colonies, and the second group is less directly inspired by nature and is reformulated as an optimization task.
