Abstract

Projected clustering discovers clusters in subsets of locally relevant attributes. There is uncertainty and imprecision about how groups of categorical values are learnt from data for projected clustering and also the data itself. A method is presented for learning discrete possibility distributions of categorical values from data for projected clustering in order to model uncertainty and imprecision. Empirical results show that fewer, more accurate, more compact, and new clusters can be discovered by using possibility distributions of categorical values when compared to an existing method based on Boolean memberships. This potentially allows for new relationships to be identified from data.
