FCM : Fuzzy C-Means Clustering - A View in Different Aspects

Authors(2) :-B Kalai Selvi, M Ashwin

Data Mining is the process of obtaining or exploring data from the large amount of raw data. It produces the meaningful information. To obtain the information data mining has multiple techniques such as classification, regression, prediction, clustering, and summarization. There are multiple tasks in data mining to obtain the information such as cleaning, integrating, selection, transformation, pattern evaluation. One of the challenging techniques in the data mining is clustering. Clustering is the process of grouping the data under some condition. The main aim of the paper is to describe about the Fuzzy C-Means Clustering (FCM) and compared with K-Means clustering. The pitfalls overcome by the FCM are also measured theoretically.
