Measuring similarity between two data objects is a more challenging problem for data mining and knowledge discovery tasks. The traditional clustering algorithms have been mainly stressed on numerical data, the implicit property of which can be exploited to define distance function between the data points to define similarity measure. The problem of similarity becomes more complex when the data is categorical which do not have a natural ordering of values or can be called as non geometrical… CONTINUE READING
