How to cluster tabular data with Markov Clustering (Ep. 73)
Aug 21st, 2019 by frag
In this episode I explain how a community detection algorithm known as Markov clustering can be constructed by combining simple concepts like random walks, graphs, similarity matrix. Moreover, I highlight how one can build a similarity graph and then run a community detection algorithm on such graph to find clusters in tabular data.
You can find a simple hands-on code snippet to play with on the Amethix Blog
