"PrincipalComponentsAnalysis" (Machine Learning Method)

Details & Suboptions

  • "PrincipalComponentsAnalysis" is a linear dimensionality reduction method. The method projects input data on a linear lower-dimensional space that preserves the maximum variance in the data.
  • The "PrincipalComponentsAnalysis" method works for datasets that have a large number of features and large number of examples; however, the learned manifold can only be linear.
  • The following plots show the results of the "PrincipalComponentsAnalysis" method applied to benchmark datasets including Fisher's Irises, MNIST and FashionMNIST:
  • "PrincipalComponentsAnalysis" is equivalent to the "Linear" and "LatentSemanticAnalysis" methods when the data is standardized.
