I introduce the basic concepts of unsupervised learning, highlighting the differences with supervised learning. The focus will be on three of the main tasks addressed by unsupervised learning: cluster analysis, anomaly detection and dimensional reduction. For each of them, I describe the problem in general terms, the ways to approach it, and some of the most popular algorithms to solve it.
