Principal Component Analysis step by step In this article I want to explain how a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) works by implementing it in Python step by step. At the end we will compare the results to the more convenient Python PCA()classes that are available through the popular matplotlib and scipy libraries and discuss how they differ. The main purposes of a principal component analysis are the analysis of data to identify patterns and finding patterns to reduce the dimensions of the dataset with minimal loss of information. Here, our desired outcome of the principal component analysis is to project a feature space (our dataset consisting of n x d-dimensional samples) onto a smaller subspace that represents our data "well". A possible application would be a pattern classification task, where we want to reduce the computational costs and the error of parameter estimation by reducing the number of dimensions of our feature space by extracting a subspace that describes our data "best". What is a "good" subspace?

VC blog Posted: February 19th, 2014 | Author: Manuel Lima | Filed under: Uncategorized | No Comments » As many readers might have noticed, from my first and most recent book, I’m slightly obsessed with medieval information design, and the remarkable work of many our visualization forefathers, such as Isidore of Seville (ca. 560–636), Lambert of Saint-Omer (ca. 1061–ca. 1125), or Joachim of Fiore (ca. 1135–1202). An important figure in this context was the German historian and cartographer Hartmann Schedel (1440–1514). In 1493, in the city of Nuremberg, Germany, Schedel published a remarkable, densely illustrated and technically advanced incunabulum (a book printed before 1501), entitled the Nuremberg Chronicle. Also know as Liber Chronicarum (Book of Chronicles), this universal history of the world was compiled from older and contemporary sources, and comprised 1,809 woodcuts produced from 645 blocks.
