Hi, I was wondering if there is a way in matlab to do automatic kmeans clustering where the number of clusters K is choosen automtically instead of being user defined? Thanks

And the link I gave below was of no help? Well, search around... because I think I remember earlier this year there was some talk about methods that tried to guess at the best number of clusters to use.

I am trying to determine the number of clusters automatically i.e the value of k automatically depending upon the image details. I have used the VAT alorithm combined with EDBE algorithm to find k and it did not work properly for my large of large array size. Can anyone help me out with the pseudo code for the algorithm to find automatically the number of clusters proposed by Dr.James Bezdek.

old question, but I just found a way myself looking at matlab documentation:
klist=2:n;%the number of clusters you want to try
myfunc = @(X,K)(kmeans(X, K));
eva = evalclusters(net.IW{1},myfunc,'CalinskiHarabasz','klist',klist)
classes=kmeans(net.IW{1},eva.OptimalK);

*hi,
I used the code of NCestimation_v2 but got this error message
??? Undefined function or variable 'classlabel'.
Error in ==> validity_Index at 5 labels = classlabel;
I used my data with that code
data=dlmread('d:\matlab\r2011a\bin\paper_comm\link_flixster_bin1.txt');
c=kmeans(f1,2);
• I do not know what classlabel should be
Thanks

Sorry, I don't know what NCestimation_v2 is, and I don't have the Statistical Toolbox so I don't have kmeans ().
