This post describes (with GIFs and words) the most common clustering algorithms available through Scikit-learn.
It’s a common task for a data scientist: you need to generate segments (or clusters- I’ll use the terms interchangably) of the customer base. Where does one start? With definitions, of…Continue

Data Science and Machine Learning are furtive, they go un-noticed but are present in all ways possible and everywhere. They contribute significantly in all the fields they are applied and leave us with evidence which we can rely on and take data-driven directions. Today, a very interesting area we are going to see an example of Data Science and Machine Learning is ‘Crimes’. We are going to focus on types of crimes taken place across…Continue

What is K Means Clustering?
Clustering means grouping things which are similar or have features in common and so is the purpose of k-means clustering. K-means clustering is an unsupervised machine learning algorithm for clustering ‘n’ observations into ‘k’ clusters where k is predefined or user-defined constant. The main idea is to define k centroids, one for each cluster.
The K Means algorithm…Continue

Social media provide a low-cost alternative source for public health surveillance and health-related classification plays an important role to identify useful information. We summarized the recent classification methods using social media in public health. These methods rely on bag-of-words (BOW) model and have difficulty grasping the semantic meaning of texts. Unlike these methods, we present a word embedding based clustering method. Word embedding is one of the strongest trends in Natural…Continue
Have you ever wondered how to segment your customers? Customer segmentation is a really useful technique to group similar customers together and understand what works for that. You can then tailor your offering and marketing messages to the specific segments. If you do it right, you should be able to see a healthy increase in sales. After all, companies like Amazon target their customers on an individual level so you should at least be targeting them on a segment level.…Continue
This article provides a full demo application using both the C# and R programming languages interchangeably to rapidly identify and cluster similar images. The demo application includes a directory with 687 screenshots of webpages. Many of these images are very similar with different domain names but near identical content. Some images are only slightly similar with the sites using the same general layouts but different colors and different images on certain…
