In this paper, we consider the learning process of a probabilistic self-organizing map (PbSOM) as a model-based data clustering procedure that preserves the topological relationships between data clusters in a neural network. Based on this concept, we develop a coupling-likelihood mixture model for the PbSOM that extends the reference vectors in Kohonen's self-organizing map (SOM) to multivariate Gaussian distributions. We also derive three expectation-maximization (EM)-type algorithms, called… CONTINUE READING
