[Abstract]: Noise significantly affects cluster quality. Conventional clustering methods hardly detect clusters in a data set containing a large amount of noise. Projected clustering sheds light on identifying correlation clusters in such a data set.
In order to exclude noise points which are usually scattered in a subspace, data points are projected to form dense areas in the subspace that are regarded as correlation
clusters. However, we found that the existing methods for the projected clustering did not work very well with noise data, since they employ randomly
generated seeds (micro clusters) to trade-off the clustering quality. In this paper, we propose a divisive method for the projected clustering that does not rely on
random seeds. The proposed algorithm is capable of producing higher quality correlation clusters from noise data in a more efficient way than an agglomeration
projected algorithm. We experimentally show that our algorithm captures correlation clusters in noise data better than a well-known projected clustering method.
