Clustering is a crucial procedure in exploratory data analysis. Given some data, clustering, combined with some visualization, is probably where start to fish for any useful data patterns. I will carry out a hands-on workshop where we will dive into some of the most famous clustering approaches. These will include hierarchical clustering, k-means, DBSCAN, and network-based clustering. We will also combine clustering algorithms with dimensionality reduction and embedding approaches, and learn about  principal component analysis, multidimensional scaling, and t-SNE. We will learn how to apply these techniques to images that we will profile with deep learning models. During the workshop, we will use Orange, a data mining framework, and participants are welcome to download and install it from to follow along.
