A new efficient optimization method, called ‘Teaching–Learning-Based Optimization (TLBO)’, has been proposed very recently for the optimization of mechanical design problems. This paper proposes a new approach to using TLBO to cluster data. It is shown how TLBO can be used to find the centroids of a user specified number of clusters. The new TLBO algorithms are evaluated on some datasets and compared to the performance of K-means and PSO clustering. Results show that TLBO clustering techniques have much potential.
