Comparison of cluster measures


Clustering algorithms can be described as unsu-pervised learning algorithms in machine learning process. They assign class labels to data objects based on the relationship between data items without any pre-defined class label. This gives rise to an inherent uncertainty in the clustering process. As such clustering validity measures are needed to verify the clusters from different clustering algorithms. In this paper we compare various cluster validity measures proposed in the literature. We use the 'usage frequency' of these measures as a distinguishing attribute to classify them. We also provide the results of our experimentation to validate our classification.
