t-SNE Machine Learning Algorithm -- A Great Tool for Dimensionality Reduction in Python


A successful data scientist understands a wide range of Machine Learning algorithms and can explain the results to stakeholders. But, unfortunately, not every stakeholder has a sufficient amount of training to grasp the complexities of ML. Luckily, we can aid our explanations by using dimensionality reduction techniques to create visual representations of high dimensional data. This article will take you through one such technique called t-Distributed Stochastic Neighbor Embedding (t-SNE). Perfect categorization of Machine Learning techniques is not always possible due to the flexibility demonstrated by specific algorithms, making them useful when solving different problems (e.g., one can use k-NN for regression and classification).
