As an unsupervised learning method, stochastic competitive learning is commonly used for community detection in social network analysis. Compared with the traditional community detection algorithms, it has the advantage of realizing the timeseries community detection by simulating the community formation process. In order to improve the accuracy and solve the problem that several parameters in stochastic competitive learning need to be pre-set, the author improves the algorithms and realizes improved stochastic competitive learning by particle position initialization, parameter optimization and particle domination ability self-adaptive. The experiment result shows that each improved method improves the accuracy of the algorithm, and the F1 score of the improved algorithm is 9.07% higher than that of original algorithm.
