sklearn.decomposition.IncrementalPCA

class sklearn.decomposition.IncrementalPCA(n_components=None, whiten=False, copy=True, batch_size=None)[source]

Incremental principal components analysis (IPCA).

Linear dimensionality reduction using Singular Value Decomposition of centered data, keeping only the most significant singular vectors to project the data to a lower dimensional space.

Depending on the size of the input data, this algorithm can be much more memory efficient than a PCA.

This algorithm has constant memory complexity, on the order of batch_size, enabling use of np.memmap files without loading the entire file into memory.

The computational overhead of each SVD is O(batch_size * n_features ** 2), but only 2 * batch_size samples remain in memory at a time. There will be n_samples / batch_size SVD computations to get the principal components, versus 1 large SVD of complexity O(n_samples * n_features ** 2) for PCA.

Read more in the User Guide.

Parameters:

n_components : int or None, (default=None)

Number of components to keep. If n_components `` is ``None, then n_components is set to min(n_samples, n_features).

whiten : bool, optional

When True (False by default) the components_ vectors are divided by n_samples times components_ to ensure uncorrelated outputs with unit component-wise variances.

Whitening will remove some information from the transformed signal (the relative variance scales of the components) but can sometimes improve the predictive accuracy of the downstream estimators by making data respect some hard-wired assumptions.

copy : bool, (default=True)

If False, X will be overwritten. copy=False can be used to save memory but is unsafe for general use.

batch_size : int or None, (default=None)

The number of samples to use for each batch. Only used when calling fit. If batch_size is None, then batch_size is inferred from the data and set to 5 * n_features, to provide a balance between approximation accuracy and memory consumption.

Attributes

components_ (array, shape (n_components, n_features)) Components with maximum variance.
explained_variance_ (array, shape (n_components,)) Variance explained by each of the selected components.
explained_variance_ratio_ (array, shape (n_components,)) Percentage of variance explained by each of the selected components. If all components are stored, the sum of explained variances is equal to 1.0.
singular_values_ (array, shape (n_components,)) The singular values corresponding to each of the selected components. The singular values are equal to the 2-norms of the n_components variables in the lower-dimensional space.
mean_ (array, shape (n_features,)) Per-feature empirical mean, aggregate over calls to partial_fit.
var_ (array, shape (n_features,)) Per-feature empirical variance, aggregate over calls to partial_fit.
noise_variance_ (float) The estimated noise covariance following the Probabilistic PCA model from Tipping and Bishop 1999. See “Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning” by C. Bishop, 12.2.1 p. 574 or http://www.miketipping.com/papers/met-mppca.pdf.
n_components_ (int) The estimated number of components. Relevant when n_components=None.
n_samples_seen_ (int) The number of samples processed by the estimator. Will be reset on new calls to fit, but increments across partial_fit calls.

Notes

Implements the incremental PCA model from: D. Ross, J. Lim, R. Lin, M. Yang, Incremental Learning for Robust Visual Tracking, International Journal of Computer Vision, Volume 77, Issue 1-3, pp. 125-141, May 2008. See http://www.cs.toronto.edu/~dross/ivt/RossLimLinYang_ijcv.pdf

This model is an extension of the Sequential Karhunen-Loeve Transform from: A. Levy and M. Lindenbaum, Sequential Karhunen-Loeve Basis Extraction and its Application to Images, IEEE Transactions on Image Processing, Volume 9, Number 8, pp. 1371-1374, August 2000. See http://www.cs.technion.ac.il/~mic/doc/skl-ip.pdf

We have specifically abstained from an optimization used by authors of both papers, a QR decomposition used in specific situations to reduce the algorithmic complexity of the SVD. The source for this technique is Matrix Computations, Third Edition, G. Holub and C. Van Loan, Chapter 5, section 5.4.4, pp 252-253.. This technique has been omitted because it is advantageous only when decomposing a matrix with n_samples (rows) >= 5/3 * n_features (columns), and hurts the readability of the implemented algorithm. This would be a good opportunity for future optimization, if it is deemed necessary.

Fit the model with X, using minibatches of size batch_size.

Parameters:

X : array-like, shape (n_samples, n_features)

Training data, where n_samples is the number of samples and n_features is the number of features.

y : Ignored

Returns:

self : object

Returns the instance itself.

fit_transform(X, y=None, **fit_params)[source]

Fit to data, then transform it.

Fits transformer to X and y with optional parameters fit_params and returns a transformed version of X.

Parameters:

The method works on simple estimators as well as on nested objects (such as pipelines). The latter have parameters of the form <component>__<parameter> so that it’s possible to update each component of a nested object.
