Introduction to clustering models by using R and Tidymodels – part 4 of 4

In this session, you will train a clustering model. Clustering is the process of grouping objects with similar objects. This kind of machine learning is considered unsupervised because it doesn’t make use of previously known values to train a model. 

Who is it aimed at? 
This session is aimed at anyone who would like to get started with data science in R 

Why should you attend? 
Get an introduction to clustering models and learn how to train a clustering model in R 

Any pre-requisites? 
Knowledge of basic mathematics 
Some experience programming in R
