ABSTRACT
We propose a fast agglomerative clustering method using an approximate nearest neighbor graph for reducing the number of distance calculations. The time complexity of the algorithm is improved from O(tauN2) to O(tauN log N) at the cost of a slight increase in distortion; here, tau denotes the lumber of nearest neighbor updates required at each iteration. According to the experiments, a relatively small neighborhood size is sufficient to maintain the quality close to that of the full search
