Most unsupervised learning performs clustering. A well-known exception is autoencoder neural networks, which learn how to code the input data into a (typically) lower-dimensional representation. However, although autoencoders are normally categorized under unsupervised learning, they use the input data itself as the expected output, and therefore can also be regarded as supervised learning. We do not cover autoencoders or any other unsupervised method whose goal is not to split the data into different groups.
