The drawback in the heart of this project is that this algorithm gives the same level of relevance to all the features in a dataset. This can have disastrous consequences when the features are taken from a database just because they are available. To address the issue of unequal relevance of the features we use a three-stage extension of the generic K-Means in which a third step is added to the usual two steps in a K-Means iteration: feature weighting update. We extend the generic K-Means to what we refer to as Minkowski Weighted K-Means method. We apply the developed approaches to problems in distinguishing between different mental tasks over high-dimensional EEG data.
