Abstract : Clustering is the process of partitioning a dataset into groups based on the similarity between the instances. Many clustering algorithms were proposed, but none of them proved to provide good quality partition in all situations. Consensus clustering aims to enhance the clustering process by combining different partitions obtained from different algorithms to yield a better quality consensus solution. In this work, we propose a new consensus method that uses a pattern mining technique in order to reduce the search space from instance-based into pattern-based space. Instead of finding one solution, our method generates multiple consensus candidates based on varying the number of base clusterings considered. The different solutions are then linked and presented as a tree that gives more insight about the similarities between the instances and the different partitions in the ensemble.
