    Topic:

    Unsupervised Machine Learning: Interpreting and Deploying Clustering Analysis Models

    Join us for our first TDWI NC Carolina Chapter 2019 meeting. This is the session will focus on techniques like unsupervised learning like cluster analysis, association rules, and anomaly detection. We will overview them as a group and then focus on Cluster Analysis. Although these methods open powerful analytic opportunities, they do not come with a clear path to deployment. They are exploratory in nature and don't generate a propensity score in the same way that supervised learning methods do. So how do you take these models and automate them in support of organizational decision making? This presentation will show you how.

    You Will Learn

    • When to apply supervised versus unsupervised modeling methods
    • Effective techniques for deploying the results of unsupervised learning
    • Options for inserting unsupervised models into the decision-making process of the organization
    • How to creatively combine supervised and unsupervised models for greater performance
