Clustering web search results using fuzzy ants

Schockaert, Steven, De Cock, Martine, Cornelis, Chris and Kerre, Etienne E. 2007. Clustering web search results using fuzzy ants. International Journal of Intelligent Systems 22 (5) , pp. 455-474. 10.1002/int.20209

Algorithms for clustering Web search results have to be efficient and robust. Furthermore they must be able to cluster a data set without using any kind of a priori information, such as the required number of clusters. Clustering algorithms inspired by the behavior of real ants generally meet these requirements. In this article we propose a novel approach to ant-based clustering, based on fuzzy logic.We show that it improves existing approaches and illustrates how our algorithm can be applied to the problem of Web search results clustering.
