Paper Abstract

Projection Pursuit (PP) is a component transform technique which seeks a component whose projection vector points to a direction of interestingness in data space which can be specified by a Projection Index (PI). Two most popular component analysis-based techniques, Principal Components Analysis (PCA), Independent Component Analysis (ICA) can be considered as special cases with their PIs specified by data variance and statistical independency respectively. Despite the fact that various component analysis-based techniques have been used for Dimensionality Reduction (DR) the components are generally generated by a specific technique. Even in the case of PP, the same PI has been used to generate project components. This paper explores the utility of PP in DR where various projection indexes are used for DR in context of PP. It further lays out a general setting for PP-based DR and develops algorithms to perform one dimension reduction at a time by using different PIs. In order to substantiate our findings, experiments are conducted to demonstrate advantages of the PP with mixed PIs-based DR over traditional PCA-based, ICA-based and PP-based DR techniques.
