Question

In the context of this lesson, what are some other examples of clustering applications?

Answer

Generally, clustering applies when we want to separate and group data based on similar features.

Clustering can also apply to applications that match people together, such as dating sites, or services to connect professionals, which can utilize clustering to determine recommended connections.

Clustering can also apply to personality tests, like the Myers Briggs personality test, which take certain responses and group you into a certain category based on those responses.

In addition, clustering can also apply when grouping organisms based on their physical traits, such that if you provide information, say for a dog, it should categorize it as that kind of animal.
