An improved clustering ensemble method based link analysis
Hao Z., Wang L., Cai R., Wen W.  World Wide Web 18(2): 185-195, 2015. Type: Article

A method to improve clustering ensembles of datasets, called WETU, is presented in this paper. The current clustering ensemble methods use measurements, such as the weighted connection-triple (WCT), the weighted triple-quality (WTQ), and the combi...
