3. Discovering Groups > Other Things to Cluster

Other Things to Cluster

This chapter has looked at two datasets, but there are many other things that can be done. The del.icio.us dataset from Chapter 2 can also be clustered to find groups of users or bookmarks. In the same way that the blog feeds were transformed into word vectors, any set of pages that is download can be reduced to just the words.

These ideas can be extended to many different areas to find interesting things—message boards based on word usage, companies from Yahoo! Finance based on various statistics, or top reviewers on Amazon according to what they like. It would also be interesting to look at a large social network like MySpace and cluster people according to who their friends are, or possibly use other information they provide about themselves (favorite bands, foods, etc.).
