The K-mean algorithm is one of the popular clustering techniques.The algorithm requires user to state and initialize centroid values of each group in advance. This creates problem for novice users especially to those who have no or little knowledge on the data.Trial-error attempt might be one of the possible preference to deal with this issue.In this paper, an optimization algorithm inspired from the bees foraging activities is used to locate near-optimal centroid of a given data set.Result shows that propose approached prove it robustness and competence in finding a near optimal centroid on both synthetic and real data sets.
