Implementing Hierarchical Clustering - In Python Programming language

Introduction to Hierarchical Clustering
Unsupervised learning is a type of Machine learning in which we use unlabeled data and we try to find a pattern among the data. Clustering algorithms falls under the category of unsupervised learning. In these algorithms, we try to make different clusters among the data. Hierarchical Clustering algorithms build a hierarchy of clusters where each node is a cluster consisting of the clusters of its children node.


Check out my blog on Hierarchical Clustering - An Unsupervised learning Algorithm to learn more about it.
Implementing it with Python and SciKit-Learn
We will use the python programming language for its implementation. In python language, we will be using SciKit-Learn library. So let's start with implementation - We will be using our own dataset which will be generated by us.

    1. Importing necessary Libraries -

To create a machine learning model we will use SciKit-Learn (sklearn) library and to create our dataset we will use SciPy library.

There are various strategies in Hierarchical Clustering such as : DivisiveAgglomerative
This type of diagram is called Dendrogram. Divisive - It is a Top-down approach. So we start with all observations in a large cluster and break it down into smaller ones. Agglomerative - It is the opposite of Divisive as it is a Bottom-Up approach. Here, each observation starts in its cluster and pairs of the cluster are merged as they move up the hierarchy.  (Generally, Agglomerative is used more as compared to Divisive among Data Sci…

What is Programming?👀💻
In simple language, we can say programming is a technique through which we instruct the computer to perform various tasks.
To instruct computer we need to communicate with a computer and for communication, we need a language as a medium. So programming language serves as a medium of communication between the user and a computer. But, as we know computer only understand binary language and it is practically not possible for us to use binary language with only 0s and 1s. 
To solve this problem we need some translator called the compiler. The compiler will compile the code and generate a binary file of it which will be understood by the computer. So this is a complete process of how a computer can be programmed to perform a certain task. Besides compiler there is also an Interpreter.
What is Python?🐍
Python is a high level programming language. Designed by Guido Van Rossum. Now a days python is majorly used for DataScience field i.e. Machine Learning, Artificial Inte…
