This paper presents a new multi-clustering network for the purpose of intelligent data classification. In this network, the first layer is a self-organized clustering layer and the second layer is a restricted clustering layer with a neighborhood mechanism. A new clustering algorithm is developed in this system for the efficiently use of parallel processors. This parallel algorithm enables the nodes of this network to be independently processed in order to minimize data communication load among processors. Using the parallel processors, the quite low calculation cost can be realized among the conventional networks. For example, a 4-processor parallel computing system has shown its ability to reduce the time taken for data classification to 26.75% of a single processor system without declining its performance.
