Hi Community,

I am asking myself if I set for one attribute the "label"-role when clustering. The only difference I can see is that the attribute does not appear anymore in the results sheets (centroid table, plot).
How does rapidminer takes the "label"-role into account when k-means clustering is performed?

Thanks for your explanations

Best regards,
Carlo

    Hi @Carlo ,
    since you do not need a label for clustering we will handle the label role like any other special role - it is ignored.
