Towards the end of 2018, Newtonmas, and on commenting standards that have excelled
I have published 1,036 posts at my blog, and the very first was published on 29th November 2012. It concerned dangers of indiscriminately using clustering algorithms, such as K-means. For example, K-means cannot successfully recognize many clusters which are not … Continue reading
