In this chapter you have learned how to manipulate data using unsupervised learning techniques and algorithms applying R and Tableau. The usage Tableau is simple; we use it to visualize the analytics. Also we can develop data analytics using it and delivering the overall data science project, by helping business users to evaluate and understand the models that they have been given. We can get the data, analyze it, and evaluate it with a real approach.

In the next chapter we will see how to interpret the results and the numbers, when you have them, how to make them understandable for real applications in real life, applying the data in real situations and visualization.
