This paper investigates a traditional clustering algorithm (K-means) and two neural networks (SOM and ART-F). The characteristics of each algorithm are illustrated by simulating geometric space data clustering. Then each algorithm is applied to image data sets to compress the size by reducing the number of colors from 256 to 16.
