Title: Coresets for k-Means clustering

Coresets are compact representations of data, accompanied with a guarantee that models trained on them have competitive performance with models trained on all the data. In this talk, I will discuss state-of-the-art algorithms on coresets for k-Means by Bachem [1], presented earlier this year at the KDD conference.
