fuzzy-c-means is a Python module implementing the Fuzzy C-means clustering algorithm.


the fuzzy-c-means package is available in PyPI. to install, simply type the following command:

pip install fuzzy-c-means

basic clustering example

simple example of use the fuzzy-c-means to cluster a dataset in two groups:

importing libraries

%matplotlib inline
import numpy as np
from fcmeans import FCM
from matplotlib import pyplot as plt

creating artificial data set

n_samples = 3000

X = np.concatenate((
    np.random.normal((-2, -2), size=(n_samples, 2)),
    np.random.normal((2, 2), size=(n_samples, 2))

fitting the fuzzy-c-means

fcm = FCM(n_clusters=2)

showing results

# outputs
fcm_centers = fcm.centers
fcm_labels = fcm.predict(X)

# plot result
f, axes = plt.subplots(1, 2, figsize=(11,5))
axes[0].scatter(X[:,0], X[:,1], alpha=.1)
axes[1].scatter(X[:,0], X[:,1], c=fcm_labels, alpha=.1)
axes[1].scatter(fcm_centers[:,0], fcm_centers[:,1], marker="+", s=500, c='w')
