Hierarchical clustering is the second most popular technique for clustering after K-means. Remember, in K-means; we need to define the number of clusters beforehand. However, in hierarchical clustering, we don’t have to specify the number of […]

## Types of PCA

In the era of big data, massive datasets are increasingly common in many disciplines and are often difficult to interpret. In this article, we’ll discuss the principal component analysis which is widely used as a dimensionaity […]

Since it is not always possible to study the entire population, we need to rely on sampling to acquire a segment of the population to perform an experiment. It is also essential to make sure that […]
