We present a new heuristic density-based ant colony clustering algorithm (HDACC). Firstly, the device of "memory bank" is proposed, which can bring forth heuristic knowledge guiding an ant to move in the bi-dimensional grid space. Hence the randomness of the ant's motion decreases and algorithm convergence speeds up. In addition, the memory bank makes it possible for every object to be inspected before the algorithm is terminated, which avoids the production of an "unassigned data object". So… CONTINUE READING
