Papers We Love Bucharest is happy to announce the meetup #12 in which we'll present and discuss the original papers of Principal Component Analysis (PCA) as we call it today in machine learning, a very beautiful and useful algorithm! It is a nice opportunity to review together its mathematical background from both modern and historical perspective and see some code demos!

Principal Component Analysis - the original papers

Original Paper:

K. Pearson, "On lines and planes of closest fit to systems of points in space (", Philosophical Magazine, Vol. 2, No. 6. (1901), pp. [masked]

As usual, we'll not limit the presentation to the original papers.
