bicACO: An Ant Colony Inspired Biclustering Algorithm
A recent proposal developed to avoid some of the drawbacks presented by standard clustering algorithms is the so-called biclustering technique , which performs clustering of rows and columns of the data matrix simultaneously, allowing the extraction of additional information from the dataset. Since the biclustering problem is combinatorial, and ant-based systems present several advantages when dealing with this kind of problems , in this work we propose an antinspired algorithm for biclustering, which was named bicACO.
