Display in Kmeans function

3 views (last 30 days)
What is the meaning of title "phase" and "num" in the Kmeans function when the display option is on? I kind of guess the "num" representing the number of outliers. Is my guessing right?

phase refers to "batch update" (1) or "online update" (2). The meaning of these phases is described in the kmeans documentation, in the section Name-Value Pair Arguments section, under "Online Phase".
I believe that num is the number of clusters found after each iteration, but I could not find that stated in the documentation.

Thank you very much, cyclist. I would guess the "num" representing the number of uncertain labeling, so as iterations goes up, the uncertainty will go down.

Yes, I would say that that is a reasonable conceptual way of thinking about it.
Also, the best form of thanks is accepting a solution, which rewards the contributor, and also points future users toward correct solutions.
