In this paper, a multiobjective evolutionary algorithm based soft subspace clustering, MOSSC, is proposed to simultaneously optimize the weighting within-cluster compactness and weighting between-cluster separation incorporated within two different clustering validity criteria. The main advantage of MOSSC lies in the fact that it effectively integrates the merits of soft subspace clustering and the good properties of the multiobjective optimization-based approach for fuzzy clustering. This makes it possible to avoid trapping in local minima and thus obtain more stable clustering results. Substantial experimental results on both synthetic and real data sets demonstrate that MOSSC is generally effective in subspace clustering and can achieve superior performance over existing state-of-the-art soft subspace clustering algorithms. © 2012 IEEE.
