Minimax Linkage Hierarchical Clustering in AI/Machine Learning (the first pioneer)

Dr. SIO IONG AO et al.'s first pioneering invention of the widely acclaimed minimax linkage hierarchical clustering in machine learning has achieved satisfactory results in multiple independent scientific benchmark testing, like the following reports:

SIO IONG AO et al. report summary: "We have compared the performance of the three implemented algorithms, using SNP data from the ENCODE regions of the HapMap project, according to three criteria: (1) compression, the ratio of clusters to SNPs, (2) compactness, the average distance between a SNP and the tag SNP of its cluster, and (3) run time. Our results show that the compression ratio is roughly equivalent for the set cover and minimax clustering algorithms but substantially higher for the complete linkage (Table 1). The minimax algorithm produces more compact clusters than the set cover algorithm, ..." SIO IONG AO et al., The University of Hong Kong, in our article: CLUSTAG: Hierarchical Clustering and Graph Methods for Selecting Tag SNPs, Bioinformatics, volume 21, issue 8, pages 1735-1736, April 2005 (Advance Online Publication: 07 December 2004);

Bien and Tibshirani report summary: "Ao et al. (2005) proposed a new measure of cluster distance, called minimax linkage, for the problem of selecting tag single nucleotide polymorphisms ... We believe that their proposed linkage has great potential as a tool for data analysis ... we show that minimax linkage shares many of the desirable theoretical properties of the standard linkages while adding interpretative value ... thereby increasing the ease of interpretation ... we use two real datasets to demonstrate the appeal of using minimax linkage compared with other linkages ..." by Jacob Bien and Robert Tibshirani, Stanford University, in their article: Hierarchical Clustering With Prototypes via Minimax Linkage, Journal of the American Statistical Association, 106(495), 1075-1084, 2011;

Tai and Frisoli report summary: "Minimax linkage was first introduced by Ao et al. (2004) in 2004, as an alternative to standard linkage methods used in hierarchical clustering ... Similarly to Bien and Tibshirani (2011), we find that minimax linkage often produces the smallest distances to prototypes, meaning that objects in a cluster are tightly clustered around their prototype. This is true across a range of values for the total number of clusters (k) ..." from the recent comprehensive evaluation "Benchmarking Minimax Linkage in Hierarchical Clustering" by Xiao Hui Tai and Kayla Frisoli, Carnegie Mellon University (In: Data Analysis and Rationality in a Complex World, Springer, 2021).

Because of its proven advantages, different programming libraries have been developed by computer scientists for implementing it in popular AI and data science programming languages like:

Python - pyminimax in GitHub: https://github.com/beginnerSC/pyminimax

R - R Project: https://search.r-project.org/CRAN/refmans/FCPS/html/MinimaxLinkageClustering.html

Universities across America and Europe have incorporated Dr. SIO IONG AO's first proposed minimax linkage into their artificial intelligence (AI) undergraduate courses as standard teaching materials, because of the unique desirable properties associated with minimax linkage criterion. For example, two of the top three universities in AI over the world (U.S. News & World Report - Grad Schools: Rankings for Computer Science Program and AI Specialty; retrieved 11 March 2024), i.e., Carnegie Mellon University (#1 in AI) & Stanford University (#3 in AI), have taught the minimax linkage in their undergraduate AI courses like: Data Mining (Carnegie Mellon), Statistics & Data Science Undergraduate Program (Carnegie Mellon), and Unsupervised Learning (Stanford).

WCLUSTAG – An advanced AI tag SNP selection program with our minimax linkage hierarchical clustering, which can take account of both functional and linkage disequilibrium information, available for downloads at:
https://www.engineeringletters.com/editors/SIAO/WCLUSTAG/WCLUSTAG.htm

Dr. SIO IONG AO et al.'s AI freeware CLUSTAG and WCLUSTAG is listed in Wikipedia as one of the two internationally famed tools for tag SNP selection (Retrieved 9 March 2024). The software CLUSTAG is the first real-world application of the minimax linkage hierarchical clustering. Tag SNP selection can significantly reduce both the cost and the time of mapping genome areas associated with the target disease by avoiding the need to genotype every SNP in the chromosomal region. It is found that the genotyping cost saved can be as high as 80%. A few examples of the multinational medical research institutions that have been deploying/exploring/expounding our AI software CLUSTAG and WCLUSTAG for the recent nineteen years are listed as follows:

and more (authored and/or edited over one hundred academic books on artificial intelligence, digiTech innovations and network engineering in total) ...

Note:

(1) The publisher Springer has released the official paid download number of the electronic version of the book and its citation number on the SpringerLink webpage dedicated to the book (all data retrieved on March 18, 2024);

(2) The sum of the official paid downloads on SpringerLink for all my forty-one books published by Springer: 1.55 million times;

(3) Many of my books have been frequently ranked among the top 25% most downloaded eBooks in the publisher Springer's respective eBook Collection;

(4) For reference, the price for one eBook paid download on SpringerLink of Dr. Ao's book "Machine Learning and Systems Engineering" is EUR160. Very roughly speaking, the total revenue for the paid downloads of 1.55 milllion times for my forty-one books published by Springer is the product of EUR160 per download and 1.55 million times, i.e., EUR248 million. Assuming that the discount for institution/university downloads will be 50%, the total revenue after the discount is EUR124 million (or US$130 million, or AUD$200 million). This figure does not include the sales of hardcover copies in bookstores like Amazon and Barnes & Noble. It can be clearly seen that the IPs and copyrights associated with Dr. Ao's forty-one books in AI is a truly global, multi-million dollar business for the publisher Springer.

(5) The sum of the official SpringerLink book citation numbers for all my forty-one books published by Springer: 1702;

(6) According to the recent comprehensive scholarly survey by Andreas Nishikawa-Pacher ("Who are the 100 largest scientific publishers by journal count? A webscraping approach". Journal of Documentation. 2022, vol. 78 no. 7, pp. 450-463. Emerald Publishing), the publisher Springer is ranked the largest academic publisher in the world, while the publisher Taylor & Francis is ranked the second largest academic publisher in the world. It is an exceptionally prominent achievement that both of the world's largest two academic publishers have published academic books authored and/or edited by Dr. SIO IONG AO, with their combined total reaching an extraordinarily impressive forty-two academic books on AI, digitech and network engineering.

(7) Five of Dr. Ao's fields of expertise are AI Software, Continual Learning, EdTech, Network Engineering, and Internet Computing. As the practitioners in these fields focused much more on real-world commercial application projects and many times the IP policies of their corporations may also limit the information that they are allowed to disclose to the public, the professionals in these industry-oriented fields are generally speaking not as motivated as those in some other fields to publish academic publications. Despite these difficulties, Dr. Ao is still able to publish his academic works so as to facilitate the spread of knowledge. According to the Google Scholar rankings for the fields with these five labels, Dr. SIO IONG AO is ranked among the Top 10 in AI Software, Network Engineering, Internet Computing; Dr. SIO IONG AO is ranked among the Top 50 in EdTech; Dr. SIO IONG AO is ranked among the Top 100 in Continual Learning (Retrieved April 11, 2024).
