We focused on unsupervised learning and described some algorithms, we also concentrated on classifiers. We took time to study cluster analysis, focusing on centroids-based algorithms, and we also looked at hierarchical clustering.

We used Rattle to process customer data in order to create different clusters of customers, and then, we used Qlik Sense to visualize these different clusters.
