DataHour Recording

About the DataHour:

While building ML/DL models one has to take care of a large volume of data which increases model run time and the complexity to understand the predictions.

Dimensionality reduction is a way to deduce large columns of data to few, the transformed data explains data in a precise manner and makes the process of generating output easy for classic ML models. The process is nothing but the transformation of data from a high-dimensional space into a low-dimensional space so that the low-dimensional representation retains some meaningful properties of the original data, ideally close to its intrinsic dimension.

In this DataHour, Varun will discuss PCA and Factor analysis to understand how dimensional reduction is performed. 

Enthusiasm of learning Data Science and basic understanding of data dimensions, Eigenvalues, EigenVectors and Linear equations

Who is this DataHour for?

  • Students & Freshers who want to build a career in the Data-tech domain.
  • Working professionals who want to transition to the Data-tech domain.
  • Data science professionals who want to accelerate their career growth
