Abstract

Uncertainty is one of the most critical aspects that affect the quality of Big Data management and mining methods. Clustering uncertain data has traditionally focused on data coming from location- based services, sensor networks, or error-prone laboratory experiments. In this work we study for the first time the impact of clustering uncertain data on a novel context consisting in visiting styles in an art exhibition. We consider a dataset derived from the interaction of visitors of a museum with a complex Internet of Things (IoT) framework. We model this data as a set of uncertain objects, and cluster them by employing the well-established UK-medoids algorithm. Results show that clustering accuracy is positively impacted when data uncertainty is taken into account. © ICST Institute for Computer Sciences, Social Informatics and Telecommunications Engineering 2017.
