Kmeans ClusteringIntroduction to K-means Clustering: A Tutorial.

Dr. Andrea Trevino presents a beginner introduction to the widely-used K-means clustering algorithm in this tutorial.

K-means clustering is a type of unsupervised learning, which is used when the resulting categories or groups in the data are unknown. This algorithm finds the groups that exist organically in the data and the results allow the user to label new data quickly. Clustering, in general, is a key tool for understanding your data.

This algorithm can be used in a number of applications, including behavioral segmentation, inventory categorization, sorting sensor measurements, and detecting bots or anomalies, to name a few. This tutorial covers the iterative algorithm that determines the clusters and works through a delivery fleet data example in Python.
