In Datameer's Clustering feature, it allows to include columns that are of "string" type. I am new to Clustering and Data Science but from what I have read and seen about K-means algorithm, the data points need to be numeric (since the averages are calculated etc.). My question is:
1) What values does Datameer assign to a column that is of a string type? I am doing the Bank Analytics example from the app market and the CampaignSuccess column has 4 values (success, failure, unknown, other). What values are assigned to these?
thanks & regards,
