  • The client faced issues with the existing clustering algorithm due to missing critical features and dimensions required for accurate cluster assignments.
  • Identifying which features had the most significant impact on clustering outcomes was a challenge for the client, hindering their ability to prioritize improvements.
  • The client's current univariate algorithm couldn't effectively capture complex relationships in multi-dimensional data, limiting its clustering capabilities.
  • Noisy data sources were negatively impacting clustering results, leading to inaccurate cluster assignments.
  • The client's inability to adjust hyperparameters for the clustering algorithm created a reliance on data specialists for every adjustment, impeding problem-solving and algorithm optimization agility.

Our Solution

We have provided our comprehensive solution to our client that are discussed below:

  • We expanded the dataset with additional attributes and dimensions, improving data richness and accuracy for clustering.
  • We used Scikit-Learn to identify and prioritize the most influential features, ensuring that the clustering algorithm focused on the most relevant information.
  • Transitioning to multivariate clustering techniques enabled a more comprehensive analysis of multi-dimensional data, capturing complex patterns effectively.
  • By utilizing the Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) from SciPy, we mitigated the impact of data noise, enhancing data quality and clustering accuracy.
  • We employed data visualization techniques to assess noise reduction progress, ensuring cleaner data for clustering.
  • We empowered the client to autonomously set optimal hyperparameters for the clustering algorithm using the Elbow Method and the Kneed library, reducing dependence on data specialists.
  • Binning (discretization) was used to transform continuous time series data into discrete intervals, reducing noise and enhancing interpretability, making it easier to discern patterns in the data.
