From Trees to Continuous Embeddings and Back: Hyperbolic Hierarchical Clustering

Meta Review

Throughout discussion among reviewers with the author response, all reviewers agree with the novelty and the significance of the theoretical contribution of this paper, which provides approximation guarantees of the proposed embedding. While reviewers raised a concern about empirical performance regarding with computational cost and parameter tuning, they are common problems for other clustering approaches and are not crucial problems of the proposal. Hence I recommend acceptance of this paper.
