Cluster analysis is one of the main techniques in the Data Mining area, and a way of unsupervised pattern recognition. Cluster analysis is a division of data into groups of similarity, according to established rules. In this project, two recent Swarm Intelligence algorithms are used for cluster analysis of numerical data. The bioinspired optimization methods, Firefly Algorithm and Bat Algorithm, will be adapted to perform the task of data clustering using the partitioning approach. Two different implementations of each algorithm are proposed: the sequential mode in CPU and the parallel programming using GPU with CUDA. The results of both implementations are compared with each other for each of the studied Swarm Intelligence algorithms in order to analyze the performance of the data clustering task. (AU)
