Conclusions and Future Research

Part of the Studies in Computational Intelligence book series (SCI, volume 178)


This Chapter provides a critical review of the works presented in this Volume and also narrates the scope of potential applications of the different metaheuristic-based automatic clustering schemes in data mining, high level image processing and bioinformatics. The chapter ends with a discussion on the possible evolution of the proposed methods for handling clusters of non-spherical and shell type shapes, co-clustering and the problem of integrating together a feature selection module and a clustering module under the framework of Differential Evolution (DE).
