Subject [jira] [Updated] (MAHOUT-1045) Cluster evaluators returning bad results
Date Thu, 19 Jul 2012 19:43:38 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/MAHOUT-1045?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Jeff Eastman updated MAHOUT-1045:
---------------------------------

    Attachment: MAHOUT-1045.patch

This patch adjusts the average intra-cluster density to ignore NaN values by counting the
good ones for the average. It also has two methods:

  public Map<Integer, Vector> interClusterDistances() {
  public Vector intraClusterDensities() {

that provide Java access to these intermediate values before averages are calculated.

> With real world crawl data the Intra-cluster density from ClusterEvaluator is almost
always NaN. The CDbw inter-cluster density is almost always 0. I have also seen several cases
where CDbw fails to return any results but have not tracked down why yet.
> I have sent a link to an 8G data set that reproduces these errors to Jeff Eastman.
