There exist a multitude of fuzzy clustering algorithms with well understood properties and benefits in various applications. However, there has been very little analysis on using fuzzy clustering algorithms to generate the base clusterings in cluster ensembles. This paper focuses on the comparison of using hard and fuzzy c-means algorithms in the well known evidence-accumulation framework of cluster ensembles. Our new findings include the observations that the fuzzy c-means requires much fewer base clusterings for the cluster ensemble to converge, and is more tolerant of outliers in the data. Some insights are provided regarding the observed phenomena in our experiments.
