Cluster analysis is a collection of unsupervised computational techniques often used in applications related to the patterns search, such as Data Mining. Clustering algorithms aim to separate objects into useful or significative groups (clusters), according to the objects features, so as to maximize the similarity of objects within a group and minimizing the similarity between objects of different groups, using a pre-defined metrics. This project aims to adapt a recent bioinspired optimization methods, called Fish School Search, to perform the numerical data clustering task. The proposal is to use this method along with the bioinspired approach for partitioning groups. Two different implementations to examine the clustering algorithm are proposed: one for sequential and one parallel CPU with GPU programming in CUDA environment, the results will be compared with each other to assess performance in the task of grouping data ..
