The solution is described here: K-Means clustering for mixed numeric and categorical data

C# implementation can be found in ALGLIB library, which I strongly recommend: http://www.alglib.net/translator/man/manual.csharp.html#gs_packages

  • $\begingroup$ ALGLIB looks really interesting! I'm a Data Scientist working in a .NET shop, and am looking to learn C#. Could you tell me a little more about the library? $\endgroup$ – neuron Nov 21 '14 at 9:38
