Title:
Mutual Information-Based Clustering: Hard or Soft? 
Pages contribution:
1-6 
Abstract:
In this paper, we investigate mutual information as a cost function for clustering, and show in which cases hard, i.e., deterministic, clusters are optimal. Using convexity properties of mutual information, we show that certain formulations of the information bottleneck problem are solved by hard clusters. Similarly, hard clusters are optimal for the information-theoretic co-clustering problem that deals with simultaneous clustering of two dependent data sets. If both data sets hav...    »
