Hey folks,

I'm really excited to share with you something I've been working on for a past few weeks. The paper is about **mathematical model underlying PCA algorithm** and it's done in online LaTeX editor, ShareLaTeX.

PCA algorithm is an unsupervised learning algorithm used for data dimensionality reduction and it's often applied before the actual supervised learning algorithms such as Artificial Neural Networks. The goal of the PCA is to significantly decrease the number of dimensions while retaining as much information given in the original data as possible. This becomes very important for the efficiency of the actual learning algorithms, especially when we talk about ANN's because of their complex architecture and vast number of calculations.

In a way, this paper also represents the summary of my work and dedication to mathematics over the last four years. Words cannot express how much gratitude I owe to Brilliant and this incredible community for my improvement in mathematics. Discovering Brilliant was for sure a milestone for me and I could've never written this paper without knowledge and deep understanding I gained here.

So, here's the link, I hope you will have fun reading it and maybe learn something new! I want to hear your impressions, critiques and suggestions in the comment section.

Cheers!

TopNewestI never would have been doing this in high school! I didn't learn about PCA until grad school. I'm glad the internet is enabling this accelerated learning.

This is very impressive. Good job on the hard work, and congratulations on completing high school. Maybe you can add a small abstract of your thesis with this note for the uninitiated?

I'm glad you like it. I added a few lines to briefly describe PCA and its importance in modern-day ML.
