Class FarthestSumPoints<O>

  • Type Parameters:
    O - Object type for kmedoids and kmedians
    All Implemented Interfaces:
    KMeansInitialization, KMedoidsInitialization<O>

    public class FarthestSumPoints<O>
    extends FarthestPoints<O>
    K-Means initialization by repeatedly choosing the farthest point (by the sum of distances to previous objects).

    Note: this is less random than other initializations, so running multiple times will be more likely to return the same local minima.
