PCA aids in the interpretation of data, although it does not always identify the most relevant patterns. PCA is a technique for reducing the complexity of high-dimensional data while preserving trends and patterns. It accomplishes this by condensing the data into fewer dimensions that serve as feature summaries.
PCA has the potential to assist us boost performance at a modest cost of model correctness. Other advantages of PCA include data noise reduction, feature selection (to a degree), and the capacity to generate independent, uncorrelated data features.
In exploratory data analysis and machine learning for predictive models, PCA is the most extensively used tool. PCA is also an unsupervised statistical tool for examining the interrelationships between a set of variables. Regression determines a line of best fit, which is also known as a generic factor analysis.
