In this chapter, we will look at clustering algorithms or, as I like to call them, K-algorithms. Specifically, I’m referring to the K-nearest neighbor algorithm and the K-means algorithm. These algorithms are finding extensive use in classification systems and machine learning systems. These algorithms can become complex and mathematical. However, what we will do is look at the principles of these algorithms without the mathematical details of their implementation and simply use the concepts behind the mathematics to explain them.
