In this work, we present a randomized coreset construction for projective clustering, which involves computing a set of k closest j-dimensional linear (affine) subspaces of a given set of n vectors in d dimensions. Let A∈ℝn×d be an input matrix. An earlier deterministic coreset construction of Feldman et. al. [10] relied on computing the SVD of A. The best known algorithms for SVD require {nd2,n2d} time, which may not be feasible for large values of n and d. We present a coreset construction by projecting the matrix A on some orthonormal vectors that closely approximate the right singular vectors of A. As a consequence, when the values of k and j are small, we are able to achieve a faster algorithm, as compared to [10], while maintaining almost the same approximation. We also benefit in terms of space as well as exploit the sparsity of the input dataset. Another advantage of our approach is that it can be constructed in a streaming setting quite efficiently. © Springer International Publishing AG, part of Springer Nature 2018.
