Abstract

This paper presents a novel clustering approach based on the classic Fuzzy c-means algorithm. The approach is inspired from the concept of interaction between objects in physics. Each data point is regarded as a particle. A specific weight is associated with each data particle depending on its interaction with other particles. This interaction is induced by attraction forces between pairs of particles and the escape velocity from other particles. Classification experiments using two data sets from UCI repository demonstrate the outperformance of the proposed approach over other clustering algorithms. In addition, results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme for segmentation of multispectral face images.
