Good books on unsupervised learning

3

1

I am looking for a good book about unsupervised learning that goes beyond the typical k-means and hierarchical clustering algorithms.

Practical implementations in R or Python will be a plus.

Currently I am working in retail, so the typical use cases I am interested are customer segmentation, products segmentation.

Any ideas?

Don't forget about lecture notes and slides. I recently saw some very good cluster analysis lecture slides. – Has QUIT--Anony-Mousse – 2018-04-30T19:00:48.013

There might not be an entire book about unsupervised techniques, given the greater effectiveness of supervised learning techniques. However, there are small books and selected chapters from longer books that could be relevant:
