Unsupervised PCA Concordia (targetcl. 8)

On the left, the PCA scatterplot is shown, on the right the retained variance for varying number of features.
On the left, the PCA scatterplot is shown of data rescaled to unit variance, on the right the retained variance.

Supervised Fisher Concordia (targetcl. 8)

On the left, the Fisher scatterplot is shown, on the right the ROC curve along this direction.

Results Concordia (targetcl. 8)

The experiments are performed using dd_tools. A rudimentary explanation of the classifiers is given in the classifier section.
