Given the issues relating to big data and privacy-preserving challenges, distributed data mining (DDM) has received much attention recently. Here, we focus on the clustering problem of distributed environments. Several distributed clustering algorithms have been proposed to solve this problem, however, previous studies have mainly considered homogeneous data. In this paper, we develop a double deep autoencoder structure for clustering in distributed and heterogeneous datasets. Three datasets are used to demonstrate the proposed algorithms, and show their usefulness according to the consistent accuracy index.
