K-Means Clustering

K-Means is among the most popular and simplest clustering methods. It is intended to partition a data set into a small number of clusters such that feature vectors within a cluster have greater similarity with one another than with feature vectors from other clusters. Each cluster is characterized by a representative point, called a centroid, and a cluster radius.
In other words, the clustering methods enable reducing the problem of analysis of the entire data set to the analysis of clusters.
There are numerous ways to define the measure of similarity and centroids. For K-Means, the centroid is defined as the mean of feature vectors within the cluster.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
