Hierarchical Clustering with Python and Scikit-Learn

Hierarchical clustering is a type of unsupervised machine learning algorithm used to cluster unlabeled data points. Like K-means clustering, hierarchical clustering also groups together the data points with similar characteristics. In some cases the result of hierarchical and K-Means clustering can be similar. Before implementing hierarchical clustering using Scikit-Learn, let's
