A New Space Defined by Ant Colony Algorithm to Partition Data
To reach a robust partition, ensemble-based learning is always a very promising option. There is straightforward way to generate a set of primary partitions that are different from each other, and then to aggregate the partitions via a consensus function to generate the final partition. Another alternative in the ensemble learning is to turn to fusion of different data from originally different sources. In this paper we introduce a new ensemble learning based on the Ant Colony clustering algorithm. Experimental results on some real-world datasets are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed method in generating the final partition.
