Semi-supervised clustering employs a small amount of labeled data to aid unsupervised learning. The focus of this paper is on Metric Learning, with particular interest in incorporating side information to make it semi-supervised. This study is primarily motivated by an application: face-image clustering. In the paper introduces metric learning and semi-supervised clustering, Similarity metric learning method that adapt the underlying similarity metric used by the clustering algorithm. This

Experimental results demonstrate that the unified approach produces better clusters than both individual approaches as well as previously proposed semi-supervised clustering algorithms. This paper followed by the discussion of experiments on face-image clustering, as well as future work.
