Subject Streaming K-medoids
Date Mon, 01 Jun 2015 15:23:58 GMT
Hello everyone,

I have an idea and I would like to get a validation from community about 
it.

In Mahout there is an implementation of Streaming K-means. I'm 
interested in your opinion would it make sense to make a similar 
implementation of Streaming K-medoids?

K-medoids has even bigger problems than K-means because it's not 
scalable, but can be useful in some cases (e.g. It allows more 
sophisticated distance measures).

What is your opinion about such an approach? Does anyone see problems 
with it?

I already implemented K-medoids using this approach 
https://seer.lcc.ufmg.br/index.php/jidm/article/viewFile/99/82 but I now 
have a problem with a distance measure that does not allow projections, 
so I came up to the idea to implement it in a similar way as Streaming 
K-medoids.

Best regards,
Marko
