K-means - evaluating the performance of clustering models

With models such as regression, classification, and recommendation engines, there are many evaluation metrics that can be applied to clustering models to analyze their performance and the goodness of the clustering of the data points.

External evaluation refers to using data external to the training data for evaluation purposes.
