Segmentation using NMF decomposition
From the nowadays segmentation, we require them to follow below features:
- it should be balanced,
- segments should be distinctive,
- the discovered over and under indexed features within segments should create a meaningful story,
- and in the best case the amount of differentiative factors that drives segmentation should be small.
The last requirement often is a bottleneck in the scenario of a survey where respondents are asked enormous amount of questions.
The solution, one from many, to this use case can be the nonnegative matrix factorization that in a one attempt segments respondents and their features!
I'll present concept of the NMF decomposition and I'll present applications in R, with the explanation of diagnostic plots.
Working with high dimensional data? Often facing the need to group observations? That's a good presentation for you.
