The GHNF is a hierarchical model based on the growing neural forest, which is a tree-based model that learns a set of trees (forest) instead of a general graph so that the forest can grow in size. This way, the GHNF faces three important limitations regarding the self-organizing map: fixed size, fixed topology, and lack of hierarchical representation for input data. Hence, the GHNF is especially amenable to datasets containing clusters where each cluster has a hierarchical structure since each tree of the GHNF forest can adapt to one of the clusters. Experimental results show the goodness of our proposal in terms of self-organization and clustering capabilities. In particular, it has been applied to text mining of tweets as a typical exploratory data analysis application, where a hierarchical representation of concepts present in tweets has been obtained. Moreover, it has been applied to foreground detection in video sequences, outperforming several methods specialized in foreground detection.||URI:||http://hdl.handle.net/10553/114744||ISSN:||1370-4621||DOI:||10.1007/s11063-020-10360-2||Source:||Neural Processing Letters [ISSN 1370-4621], n. 52, p. 2537-2563|
