Dimensionality Reduction in kdb+

14 Jun 2018 | , , , , ,

Dimensionality reduction methods have been the focus of much interest within the statistics and machine learning communities for a range of applications. These techniques have a long history as being methods for data pre-processing. Dimensionality reduction is the mapping of data to a lower dimensional space such that uninformative variance in the data is discarded. By doing this we hope to retain only that data that is meaningful to our machine learning problem. In addition, by finding a lower-dimensional representation of a dataset we hope we can improve the efficiency and accuracy of machine learning models.
