Nonlinearities in SOA-based wavelength conversion are experimentally tackled using post-blind-compensation based on machine learning clustering for coherent 16/64-QAM signals. We show that K-means outperforms fuzzy-logic since it tackles more effectively non-circularly- symmetric Gaussian noise and nonlinearity.
