What is the difference between clustering(classification) algorithm and classification(clustering) algoritm. And how do you model that in Rapid Miner?

Re: Algoritm

I'm a bit unclear as to what you're asking. Clustering and Classification are two different methods of machine learning and use two distinct groups of algorithms.  For example a clustering algorithm could use k-means to segment your dataset, whereas a K-nn algortihm can be used for a classification task. You can build a processes that are a hybrid of clustering and classification but the two are distinct types of analysis.  Please provide more info on what it is you're trying to accomplish.

Re: Algoritm

Ok, clear. How do I build a hybride of clustering and classification? Do you have a sample for me?

Re: Algoritm

I would take a look through the community first. There are several clustering/classification posts to look thru. 

 

Did you see this one? It has a sample process: http://community.rapidminer.com/t5/Data-Mining-Use-Cases/text-mining-classification-amp-clustering-a...
