Bayesian PCA


By formulating PCA as a Bayesian model, we can auotmatically choose a latent dimensionality by maximizing the (approximate) marginal likelihood of the model.


This concept has the prerequisites:


  • Know the definition of the Bayesian PCA model
  • How can it be used to select the dimension of the latent space?
  • Know of a way to approximate the marginal likelihood (e.g. the evidence approximation)
