Subject Kmeans clustering in multiple levels
Date Thu, 10 Feb 2011 17:45:34 GMT

In the manning book, it is suggested that we run clustering in multiple levels when clustering
large number of articles.  For example, if we were to cluster 1 million articles, we would
first cluster it into 100 giant clusters and cluster again to get smaller clusters.
My question is when we run cluster for each level, what should be the maxIteration?  Is doing
one iteration enough for each level?
Thank you,Veronica
