A layman’s introduction to principal component analysis

Principal Component is hard to explain without getting into  Eigen vectors and Eigen values.  So loved this when i saw this video. Its explanation is intuitive and explains everything in simple lay man’s terms.

Juster under 1 minute 33 second, this video will surely enlighten you on PCA.

And for those who are more mathematically inclined the following video is a must. At close to 14 mins, it can save you hours of studying a textbook.
