Newbie getting started

Jul 29, 2011 at 4:17 PM


I just stumbled across your libraries and I am interested in trying them out.  I'm pretty new to data mining.

The problem I am trying to solve is this: I have a data set that consists of customers and various facts about a customer (e.g. city, age, hair-colour, gender, etc, etc).  I want the algorithm to classify this set into groups for me, and give me some idea about what it thought was similar about the members of each group.

Is this possible with the library?  Can you give me any help to get started?
