1 - About

k-Means is an Unsupervised distance-based clustering algorithm that partitions the data into a predetermined number of clusters.

Each cluster has a centroid (center of gravity).

Cases (individuals within the population) that are in a cluster are close to the centroid.

Oracle Data Mining supports an enhanced version of k-Means. It goes beyond the classical implementation by defining a hierarchical parent-child relationship of clusters.
