eli5 What’s K-means clustering?


I started learning Machine learning from 0, can someone explain to me in an easy way what K-MEANS CLUSTERING is?

Also, if you have any suggestions or advices on learning Machine learning as a beginner, I’d be more than happy to read. I started studying linear algebra based on a YouTuber’s suggestion.

Clustering means to form groups. K refers to the number of clusters you want to make. K-means Clustering means to assign your datas into one of K clusters based on which cluster center they are closest to. The clusters’ center are the things you find from iterative learning.
