Why Take This Course

In the computational world of AI you will often encounter enormous amounts of data that needs to be processed. Often, the data volume will be so large that you will need to use some form of data reduction technique. Eigen-concepts are a big part of the mathematical background needed to understand a useful data reduction tools, called Principal Component Analysis (PCA).
