Default Re: How Many Iterations to Pick Best K-Cluster?

The location of the centroids is fully dependent on the training data. Lloyd's algorithm doesn't find an optimal solution; K-means clustering requires multiple centroid selections to determine the best fit. This reduces the 'luck' in your initial random centroid selections.
