Week #6

Published: 07/12/2019

Now that PCA implementation was working, I needed to improve the performance as the previous performance was too slow to be put into use. As per mentor's suggestions, I tried to replace the loading with an identity matrix to avoid overhead and reduce the number of samples. Furthermore, I tried to reconstruct the original data matrix at the merging stage and ran PCA on top of that to confirm the accuracy of the current implementation.

What did I do this week?

Check various ways to improve PCA performance

Did I get stuck anywhere?

I was getting errors from dimensions of the buffers that I pre-defined. 

What will I work on next week?

I will work on other ways of improving the performance of the algorithm
