Feature Reduction for Unsupervised Learning

  title={Feature Reduction for Unsupervised Learning},
  author={Meng Wu and Yang Zhao},
In this project, four unsupervised feature reduction algorithms for clustering problem were investigated and experimented upon two sets of data – handwritten digits data set and the functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) resting state data set. Ratio of sum of squares (RSS), leverage score (LEV), and Laplacian score (LAP) were used to rank the influences of the features in the clustering. Similarity based method were implemented to find largest groups of features that dominate the… CONTINUE READING
