Research in the last decade emphasized the potential of designing adaptive pattern recognition classifiers based on algorithms using multi-layered artificial neural nets. The greatest potential in such endeavors was anticipated to be not only in the adaptivity but also in the high-speed processing through massively parallel VLSI implementation and optical computing. Computational advantages of such algorithms have been demonstrated in a number of papers. Neural networks particularly the self-organizing types have been found quite suitable crisp pattern for clustering of unlabeled datasets. The generalization of Kohonen-type learning vector quantization (LVQ) clustering algorithm to fuzzy LVQ clustering algorithm and its equivalence to fuzzy c-means has been clearly demonstrated recently. On the other hand, Carpenter/Grossberg's ART-type self organizing neural networks have been modified to perform fuzzy clustering by a number of researches in the past few years. The performance of such neuro-fuzzy models in clustering unlabeled data patterns is addressed in this paper. A recent development of a new similarity measure and a new learning rule for updating the centroid of the winning cluster in a fuzzy ART-type neural network is also described. The capability of the above neuro-fuzzy model in better partitioning of datasets into clusters of any shape is demonstrated.
