Performing K-Means Clustering With Python
K-Means learning is a machine learning technique used to divide a dataset into clusters to analyze its results. This classification algorithm divides a large group of data into smaller groups to maximize the similarity between data points. We will walk through applying and analyzing the K-Means clustering algorithm on a set of data using the Python libraries: pandas, scikit-learn, and matplotlib.
Upon completion of this lab you will be able to:
- Utilize Python to prepare data for Cluster Machine Learning
- Perform K-Means Clustering on a set of data
- Plotting the outcome of the K-Means clustering
This lab is intended for:
- Data engineers
- Machine learning practitioners
- Anyone interested in using Python to perform clustering
You should possess:
- A basic understanding of Python
- A basic understanding of K-Means Clustering
Calculated Systems was founded by experts in Hadoop, Google Cloud and AWS. Calculated Systems enables code-free capture, mapping and transformation of data in the cloud based on Apache NiFi, an open source project originally developed within the NSA. Calculated Systems accelerates time to market for new innovations while maintaining data integrity. With cloud automation tools, deep industry expertise, and experience productionalizing workloads development cycles are cut down to a fraction of their normal time. The ability to quickly develop large scale data ingestion and processing decreases the risk companies face in long development cycles. Calculated Systems is one of the industry leaders in Big Data transformation and education of these complex technologies.
