However, due to the ambiguities and inconsistencies in the chosen taxonomies, these methods are not applicable for a much larger database. We proposed an unsupervised clustering method, based on a given measure of similarity which can be provided by hidden Markov models. In addition, in order to better characterize… CONTINUE READING
