# What is the adjusted Rand index? ### What is the adjusted Rand index?

The adjusted Rand index is the corrected-for-chance version of the Rand index. Such a correction for chance establishes a baseline by using the expected similarity of all pair-wise comparisons between clusterings specified by a random model.

### What is Rand index in clustering?

The Rand Index computes a similarity measure between two clusterings by considering all pairs of samples and counting pairs that are assigned in the same or different clusters in the predicted and true clusterings.

### What does a negative adjusted Rand index mean?

Negative ARI says that the agreement is less than what is expected from a random result. This means the results are ‘orthogonal’ or ‘complementary’ to some extend.

### Is Rand index accurate?

Rand index is accuracy computed not in the raw data (which does not work unless you have you data where class 1 is cluster 1). Instead, it is the accuracy on pairs of points, which is invariant to renaming clusters.

### How do you read the Rand index?

The Rand index may be interpreted as the ratio of the number of object pairs placed together in a cluster in each of the two partitions and the number of object pairs assigned to different clusters in both partitions, relative to the total number of object pairs.

### What is Davies Bouldin score?

Compute the Davies-Bouldin score. The score is defined as the average similarity measure of each cluster with its most similar cluster, where similarity is the ratio of within-cluster distances to between-cluster distances. Thus, clusters which are farther apart and less dispersed will result in a better score.

### How do you interpret the adjusted Rand index?

Details. The adjusted Rand Index (ARI) should be interpreted as follows: ARI >= 0.90 excellent recovery; 0.80 =< ARI < 0.90 good recovery; 0.65 =< ARI < 0.80 moderate recovery; ARI < 0.65 poor recovery.

### What is V measure?

The V-measure is the harmonic mean between homogeneity and completeness: v = (1 + beta) * homogeneity * completeness / (beta * homogeneity + completeness) This metric is independent of the absolute values of the labels: a permutation of the class or cluster label values won’t change the score value in any way.

### What is Agglomerativeclustering?

The agglomerative clustering is the most common type of hierarchical clustering used to group objects in clusters based on their similarity. It’s also known as AGNES (Agglomerative Nesting). … Next, pairs of clusters are successively merged until all clusters have been merged into one big cluster containing all objects.

### How is Davies-Bouldin index calculated?

For each cluster, its nearest neighboring cluster is identified, and the sum of their intracluster variances is divided by the difference between their centroids. This value is calculated for each cluster, and the Davies-Bouldin index is the mean of these values.
