AFK-MC² Algorithm Speeds up k-Means Clustering Algorithm Seeding

by Alexandre Rodrigues Follow 1 Followers on  Dec 23, 2016

“Fast and Probably Good Seedings for k-Means” by Olivier Bachem et al. was presented on 2016’s Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) conference and describes AFK-MC2, an alternative method to generate initial seedings for k-Means clustering algorithm that is several orders of magnitude faster than the state of art method k-Means++.
