## What is M in fuzzy C means algorithm?

‘vj’ represents the jth cluster center. ‘m’ is the fuzziness index m € [1, ∞]. ‘c’ represents the number of cluster center. ‘µij’ represents the membership of ith data to jth cluster center.

**What is objective function in fuzzy C means?**

Mohsen Ghanea. Iranian National Institute for Oceanography. Minimizing objective function means increasing similarity among all the components within an object and reducing similarity between components of one object with others.

**What is fuzzy C means clustering in image processing?**

Fuzzy C-means (FCM) is a method of clustering which allows one piece of data to belong to two or more clusters. Fuzzy logic is a multi-valued logic derived from fuzzy set theory. FCM is popularly used for soft segmentations like brain tissue model.

### How do you do K means clustering in Python?

Step-1: Select the value of K, to decide the number of clusters to be formed. Step-2: Select random K points which will act as centroids. Step-3: Assign each data point, based on their distance from the randomly selected points (Centroid), to the nearest/closest centroid which will form the predefined clusters.

**What is the difference between K means and fuzzy c-means clustering?**

K means clustering cluster the entire dataset into K number of cluster where a data should belong to only one cluster. Fuzzy c-means create k numbers of clusters and then assign each data to each cluster, but their will be a factor which will define how strongly the data belongs to that cluster.

**What fuzzy k means clustering?**

Fuzzy K-Means is exactly the same algorithm as K-means, which is a popular simple clustering technique. A single point in a soft cluster can belong to more than one cluster with a certain affinity value towards each of the points. The affinity is in proportion with the distance of that point from the cluster centroid.

#### What are the advantages of fuzzy C-means algorithm?

The main advantage of fuzzy c – means clustering is that it allows gradual memberships of data points to clusters measured as degrees in [0,1]. This gives the flexibility to express that data points can belong to more than one cluster.
