  15. 15. TUG | Machine Learning with R and Tableau Tableau + R What did we discover? 15 Customer Segmentation (clusters) 1. There are some big spenders in the Red group, who may not have purchased in a while. 2. Our most profitable customers seem to be older with higher incomes. (Blue group) Forecasting (linear regression) 1. Tableau forecasting is very good. 2. More flexibility with R forecasting.
