MMMs-induced fuzzy co-clustering achieves dual partition of objects and items by estimating two different types of fuzzy memberships. Because memberships of objects and items are usually estimated under different constraints, the conventional models mainly targeted object clusters only, but item memberships were designed for representing intra-cluster typicalities of items, which are independently estimated in each cluster. In order to improve the interpretability of co-clusters, meaningful items should not belong to multiple clusters such that each co-cluster is characterized by different representative items. In previous studies, the item sharing penalty approach has been applied to the MMMs-induced model but the dual exclusive constraints approach has not yet. In this paper, a heuristic-based approach in FCM-type co-clustering is modified for adopting in MMMs-induced fuzzy co-clustering and its characteristics are demonstrated through several comparative experiments.
