The crow is one of the most intelligent bird and infamous for observing other birds so that they can steal their food. The crow search algorithm (CSA), a nature-based optimizer, is inspired by the social behavior of crows. Scholars have applied the CSA to obtain efficient solutions to certain function and combinatorial optimization problems. Another popular and powerful method with several real-world applications (e.g., energy, finance, marketing, and medical imaging) is fuzzy clustering. The fuzzy c-means (FCM) algorithm is a critical fuzzy clustering approach given its efficiency and implementation easily. However, the FCM algorithm can be easily trapped in the local optima. To solve this data clustering problem, this study proposes a hybrid fuzzy clustering algorithm combines the CSA and a fireworks algorithm. The algorithm performance is evaluated using eight well-known UCI benchmarks. The experimental analysis concludes that adding the fireworks algorithm improved the CSA’s performance and offered better solutions than those by other meta-heuristic algorithms.
