35 35 *k-medoids clustering algorithm The k-medoids algorithm is a clustering algorithm related to the k-means algorithm and the medoid shift algorithm. In contrast to the k-means algorithm, k-medoids chooses data points as centers (medoids or exemplars). 1. Arbitrary select k of the n data points as the medoids 2. Associate each data point to the closest medoid, and calculate total cost of each cluster 3. Swapping medoid and random case, and calculate total cost 4. Finalized cluster set In our research, similarity measurement can be defined as the sum of functional distance, behavioral distance and structural distance. However each indexing layer have different data type, and some of them have nonnumeric value. Therefore, k-medoids clustering algorithm is appropriate to us than k-means.
