Default All things considered...

After watching lecture 17, especially the final part, it seems the absolute safest approach would be to do unsupervised learning on an anonymous bunch of numbers without knowledge of the domain and without referencing whatever conclusions other people may have arrived at. Then and only then start interpreting whatever patterns arose in light of domain knowledge. Of course customers likely want full packaged solutions and opportunities for optimising the process would have been missed.

All things considered, I'm guessing it would be a brave person (by which I really mean "foolish") who started offering commercial services without a significant period of learning the ropes in real life situations
