Machine Learning Factor Analysis

Course Description:

This excellent Machine Learning – Factor Analysis course will help you to understand Factor Analysis and its link to linear regression. If you’re someone who works in analytics, or with big data, this Machine Learning – Factor Analysis course will show you how Principal Components Analysis is a cookie cutter technique to solve factor extraction and how it relates to Machine Learning. If you’re someone who needs to get to grips with machine learning, this course is for you, and it will help you to grasp the theory underlying factor analysis.

Our learning material is available to students 24/7 anywhere in the world, so it’s extremely convenient. These intensive online courses are open to everyone, as long as you have an interest in the topic! We provide world-class learning led by IAP, so you can be assured that the material is high quality, accurate and up-to-date.
