The cluster analysis method is one of the critical methods in data mining; this method of clustering algorithm will manipulate the clustering results directly. This paper proposes an Advanced Clustering Algorithm in order to addresses the concern of high dimensionality and large data set [1]. The Advanced Clustering Algorithm method avoids computing the distance of each data object to the cluster recursively and save the execution time. ACA requires a simple data structure to store information in each iteration, which is to be used in the next iteration. Experimental results show that the Advanced Clustering Algorithm method can effectively improve the speed of clustering and accuracy, reducing the computational complexity of the traditional algorithm Kohonen SOM. This paper includes Advanced Clustering Algorithm (ACA) and its simulated experimental results with different data sets.
