Introduction to Image Segmentation with K-Means clustering

#artificialintelligence

Image segmentation is an important step in image processing, and it seems everywhere if we want to analyze what's inside the image. For example, if we seek to find if there is a chair or person inside an indoor image, we may need image segmentation to separate objects and analyze each object individually to check what it is. Image segmentation usually serves as the pre-processing before pattern recognition, feature extraction, and compression of the image. Image segmentation is the classification of an image into different groups. Many kinds of research have been done in the area of image segmentation using clustering.


K-means for Beginners: How to Build from Scratch in Python

#artificialintelligence

The K-means algorithm is a method for dividing a set of data points into distinct clusters, or groups, based on similar attributes. It is an unsupervised learning algorithm which means it does not require labeled data in order to find patterns in the dataset. K-means is an approachable introduction to clustering for developers and data scientists interested in machine learning. In this article, you will learning how to implement k-means entirely from scratch and gain a strong understanding of the k-means algorithm. The goal of clustering is to divide items into groups such that objects in a group are more similar than those outside the group.


Improved Performance of Unsupervised Method by Renovated K-Means

arXiv.org Machine Learning

Clustering is a separation of data into groups of similar objects. Every group called cluster consists of objects that are similar to one another and dissimilar to objects of other groups. In this paper, the K-Means algorithm is implemented by three distance functions and to identify the optimal distance function for clustering methods. The proposed K-Means algorithm is compared with K-Means, Static Weighted K-Means (SWK-Means) and Dynamic Weighted K-Means (DWK-Means) algorithm by using Davis Bouldin index, Execution Time and Iteration count methods. Experimental results show that the proposed K-Means algorithm performed better on Iris and Wine dataset when compared with other three clustering methods.

Clustering (cluster analysis) is grouping objects based on similarities. Clustering can be used in many areas, including machine learning, computer graphics, pattern recognition, image analysis, information retrieval, bioinformatics, and data compression. Clusters are a tricky concept, which is why there are so many different clustering algorithms. Different cluster models are employed, and for each of these cluster models, different algorithms can be given. Clusters found by one clustering algorithm will definitely be different from clusters found by a different algorithm. Grouping an unlabelled example is called clustering. As the samples are unlabelled, clustering relies on unsupervised machine learning. If the examples are labeled, then it becomes classification. Knowledge of cluster models is fundamental if you want to understand the differences between various cluster algorithms, and in this article, we're going to explore this topic in depth.
