This is a follow up on another question I have while working on this same dataset (:datanet). Here's a sample of the data:

> head(datanet)
1:         40         47         62 Head-up
2:         60         74         95 Head-up
3:         62         63         88 Head-up
4:         60         56         82 Head-up
5:         66         61         90 Head-up
6:         60         53         80 Head-up

Anyways, using the package dtwclust I classified and plotted the different Events into different clusters depending on the values of ACTIVITY_X, ACTIVITY_Y and ACTIVITY_Z. Here's how I achieved that:

trainset1 <- datanet %>%

train <- as.matrix(trainset1, byrow = T, ncol=3)

train_clust <- tsclust(train, k = 4L, type = "fuzzy")

clusters <- tibble(cluster = c(train_clust@cluster))

combined_set <- bind_cols(datanet, clusters)

combined_set %>% 

#Ggplot2 package much better for graphing than the base package
  ggplot(aes(ACTIVITY_X, ACTIVITY_Y, color = as.factor(cluster), shape = Event)) +

In the dataframe combined_set, an extra column "cluster" relative to the original datanet file has been created. It displays the cluster to which each Event has been assigned to:

> head(combined_set)
1:         40         47         62 Head-up       4
2:         60         74         95 Head-up       1
3:         62         63         88 Head-up       1
4:         60         56         82 Head-up       1
5:         66         61         90 Head-up       1
6:         60         53         80 Head-up       1

However, is there a way to obtain a probability or likelihood value for each Event to be associated with a given cluster? It doesn´t necessarily need to be with package dtwclust. I'm just wondering if somebody could help me.

Any input is appreciated!

    $\begingroup$ What exactly is the model from which you want to calculate probability? Or what exactly is your definition of probability in this case? This doesn't really sound like a programming question, it sounds like you need recommendations for modeling your data from the statisticians over at Cross Validated. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I'm not sure "probability" or "likelihood" are the terms you are looking for. If you used fuzzy clustering, you can indeed see each row's degree of "belongingness" in the fcluster slot. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Alexis thank you for your answer and sorry for my late reply. I was wondering how I can access the fcluster slot for each row as you mention in your comment? $\endgroup$
