KMeans Engine

Build Status NPM version

This k-means javascript implementation is optimised for large and sparse data set by using an array of objects to represent a sparse matrix.

Most of the other implementations available in npm take a N x M matrix (a 2d array) as input. However, if the data matrix is sparse, it would consumed a lot of memory when creating the N x M matrix. For example, td-idf vectors of text documents actually form a very large and sparse matrix. It will take much time to allocate the 2d array and will even quit if there is not enough memory.

Installation

npm install kmeans-engine
