I have been using k-means for sentence clustering. I just wanted to know what the benefit is of using RxNLP Sentence Clustering?

Yes, you can certainly use k-means for sentence clustering. K-means does not provide approximate labels for your clusters. Also it generates hard clusters (a single sentence could only belong to one cluster) unless you use the Fuzzy version of k-means. The RxNLP Sentence Clustering however uses a soft-clustering approach and provides topic cues for each of the clusters. So you will roughly understand why a cluster was formed. For example, in the cluster below you know that the cluster was formed because of “terrorist attack” and “attack”
