Robust Clustering as Ensembles of Affinity Relations

  title={Robust Clustering as Ensembles of Affinity Relations},
  author={Hairong Liu and Longin Jan Latecki and Shuicheng Yan},
In this paper, we regard clustering as ensembles of k-ary affinity relations and clusters correspond to subsets of objects with maximal average affinity relations. The average affinity relation of a cluster is relaxed and well approximated by a constrained homogenous function. We present an efficient procedure to solve this optimization problem, and show that the underlying clusters can be robustly revealed by using priors systematically constructed from the data. Our method can automatically… CONTINUE READING
