Some Ideas for Formalizing Clustering

Some Ideas for Formalizing Clustering

This video was recorded at NIPS Workshops, Whistler 2009. Despite being one of the most commonly used tools for unsupervised exploratory data analisys and despite its and extensive literature very little is known about the theoretical foundations of clustering methods. We have been working on various mathematical approaches which allow the extension of earlier results in this area based on ideas from topology and metric geometry. We will give an overview at the workshop.
