Unsupervised PCA Metas 1

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 Metas 1

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