NetworkX - your unexcpected assistant for clustering analysis
08-13, 14:30–15:10 (Asia/Yerevan), 113W PAB

Clustering analysis is a common task in data science but it can sometimes get tedious. In this talk, I will present how functionality from the package NetworkX can assist us in analyzing and presenting results of clustering analysis. This talk assumes no previous knowledge, a brief reminder of graph basics will be given and networkx will be shortly presented. Join in if you - - want to hear about a new suggested usage of a known data structure. - like to get things done more efficiently when you cluster. - never heard of networkx but would like to. - all of the above.

Talk outline:
1. Graph basics reminder (5 minutes)
2. Networkx brief presentation(5-10 minutes)
3. Suggested ways to use networkx in clustering analysis (for example – visualization and automatically grouping similar clusters while keeping each of them independent) (~15 minutes)
4. Recap and Questions (5 mins tops)
