Explorer: Merge clusters

Combine clusters

Why merging clusters

If the content of some clusters is very similar, you might want to merge them together. For instance, when analysing email text data, it is likely to face clusters on different ways of starting the email (e.g. Hello, Hi, Dear ..., etc.). Relevance AI's Explorer allows you to merge these together into one cluster as general greetings.

How to merge clusters on Explorer

The merge functionality is available on the category/cluster view. So make sure a category/cluster view tab/page is set up and selected. Locate the "Merge" button right below the overview section.

Warning: merge is not reversible

To get the original clusters back, you will need to rerun clustering

When "Merge" is clicked a list will pop open on which you can select the clusters you wish to merge, hit "Merge categories" when done.
