Invited article SOM-based algorithms for qualitative variables

Abstract

It is well known that the SOM algorithm achieves a clustering of data which can be interpreted as an extension of Principal Component Analysis, because of its topologypreserving property. But the SOM algorithm can only process real-valued data. In previous papers, we have proposed several methods based on the SOM algorithm to analyze categorical data, which… (More)
