„Efficiency of Random Swap Clustering“



Random swap algorithm aims at solving clustering by a sequence of prototype swaps, and by fine-tuning their exact location by k-means. This randomized search strategy is simple to implement and efficient. It reaches good quality clustering relatively fast, and if iterated longer, it finds the correct clustering with high probability. In this paper, we analyze the expected number of iterations needed to find the correct clustering. Using this result, we derive the expected time complexity of the random swap algorithm. The main results are that the expected time complexity has (1) linear dependency on the number of data vectors, (2) quadratic dependency on the number of clusters, and (3) inverse dependency on the size of neighborhood. Experiments also show that the algorithm is clearly more efficient than k-means and almost never get stuck in inferior local minimum.

The presentation is based on this recent paper: P. Fränti, "Efficiency of random swap clustering", Journal of Big Data, 5:13, 1-29, 2018

The 2018 event will explore new topics across a brand-new agenda of 4 conference tracks:

1.      AI in the Enterprise (18th April – day 1), see how enterprise sized businesses implement and apply the latest technologies and strategies in artificial intelligence, including the deployment of machine learning strategies , the role of AI in the workplace and the role of AI in the UK from a government level. Hear from leading speakers from Prudential, Willis Towers Watson, the UK Parliament, Southern Water, UCL, Tractica and AI for Good.

2.      Data Analytics for AI & IoT (18th April – day 1), join representatives from Schneider Electric, Gartner, Milestone, Prosper BI and Orange as they identify target-rich, high-value data that can be used to generate business intelligence across a range of sectors. In addition, learn about the transformative power of AI within the energy world from the Head of Advanced Analytics and Data Lab at E.ON, Juan Bernabe Moreno.

3.      AI and the Consumer (19th April – day 2), see how AI is fuelling the future of customer experience as Gartner predict that by 2021, over 50% of enterprises will spend more per annum on chatbots and their creation than traditional app development. Sessions include a keynote on ‘ smart skincare’ from Dr. Frauke Neuser at P&G on the popular ‘Olay Skin Advisor’ powered by a deep learning algorithm that delivers a personalized approach to skin analysis. Other speakers include AI leaders from MoneyGram, HSBC, Pizza Express, Adidas, Skyscanner, NHS England, Sanofi and Diabetes UK.

4.      AI Technologies  (19 th April – day 2), learn about the full spectrum of the latest AI technology developments and see real life case study implementation. Expect to hear about visual recognition technologies , robotics and machine learning.

A range of industries and topics will be covered including:

Finance: AI applications within the banking sector, Robo advisers for Robo trading, automated financial advisors, machine learning enabling fraud reduction. Hear from senior representatives from HSBC, MoneyGram and LV=.
