Unsupervised Learning is a type of machine learning algorithm, which is used to draw conclusions out of unlabeled input data. Association Rule Mining(ARM) is one of the key unsupervised data mining method, which is used to find interesting associations in large data sets. In this paper, we would explain about data clustering by K-means followed by Association Rule Mining using Apriori algorithm in each cluster to obtain meaningful associations and then comparing it with the Self Organizing Map(SOM) clustering method. SOM makes use of neural networks for generating frequent item sets and association rules from transaction data. We would compare the accuracy and performance of the above clustering algorithms based on parameters governed by each. When this comparison is applied on various kinds of datasets, the usage of the right algorithm for each type of dataset can be determined that increases the correctness of the machine learning solution.
