A Multi-Agent Based Approach To Clustering: Harnessing The Power of Agents

By Santhana Chaimontree, Katie Atkinson and Frans Coenen


Abstract. A framework for multi-agent based clustering is described whereby individual agents represent individual clusters. A particular feature of the framework is that, after an initial cluster configuration has been generated, the agents are able to negotiate with a view to improving on this initial clustering. The framework can be used in the context of a number of clustering paradigms, two are investigated: K-means and KNN. The reported evaluation demonstrates that negotiation can serve to improve on an initial cluster configuration
