## Study Notes

• Clustering is the process of finding meaningful groups in data.
• Clustering can be done based on distance, density, or hierarchical clustering.
• Clustering is important for pre-processing and can produce different results based on the data and application.
• Clustering is often done using the k-means algorithm.
• Clustering is important for finding similar groups of data.
• DBSCAN is a density-based algorithm that creates clusters by putting edges between points that are closest to one another.
• It is resistant to noise and can handle clusters of different shapes and sizes.
• The aim of DBSCAN is to determine the "knee" parameter, which corresponds to the optimal Eps parameter.
• A knee corresponds to a threshold where a sharp change occurs along the k-distance curve.
• Cluster validity is important for supervised classification, as it determines how well the clusters represent the data.
