This correspondence describes extensions to the fuzzy k-means algorithm for clustering categorical data. By using a simple matching dissimilarity measure for categorical objects and modes instead of means for clusters, a new approach is developed, which allows the use of thek-means paradigm to efficiently cluster large categorical data sets. A fuzzyk-modes algorithm is presented and the effectiveness of the algorithm is demonstrated with experimental results.
