Abstract

The problem addressed in this article concerns the development of evolutionary clustering techniques that can be applied to adapt the existing clustering solution to a clustering of newly collected data elements. We are interested in clustering approaches that are specially suited for adapting clustering solutions in the expertise retrieval domain. This interest is inspired by practical applications such as expertise retrieval systems where the information available in the system database is periodically updated by extracting new data. The experts available in the system database are usually partitioned into a number of disjoint subject categories. It is becoming impractical to re-cluster this large volume of available information. Therefore, the objective is to update the existing expert partitioning by the clustering produced on the newly extracted experts. Three different evolutionary clustering techniques are considered to be suitable for this scenario. The proposed techniques are initially evaluated by applying the algorithms on data extracted from the PubMed repository.
