— Unlike traditional one-way K-means clustering, co-clustering simultaneously cluster both data points and features of a two-dimensional data matrix. It is a powerful data analysis technique that can discover latent patterns hidden within particular rows and columns. Accordingly, co-clustering has been successfully applied to varied domains, including, but not only limited to, text clustering, microarray analysis, speech and video analysis, and natural language processing. Assuming a whole data matrix is available, usual co-clustering algorithm updates all row and column assignments in batch mode. In this paper, we develop an online incremental co-clustering algorithm that can update both row and column clustering statistics on the fly only for each available data point; thus, the proposed algorithm can handle stream data collected from sensor networks or handheld devices. Characteristics among batch, mini-batch, and online clustering and co-clustering algorithms are discussed and future work is provided.
