AGNES Implementation

Development comments edit

Another data mining algorithm: AGNES (Agglomerative Nesting)

AGNES Algorithm

AGNES takes a different approach than k-means which was the subject of my previous post. Initially it considers all data points as a separate cluster.

AGNES 1

Then finds the minimum distance between clusters and merges the closest clusters:

AGNES 2

The resulting cluster is added to the all cluster list the merged clusters are removed as they are no longer valid.
