Principal Component Analysis (PCA) in Python

Key Info
Description - a brief synopsis, abstract or summary of what the learning resource is about: 

Principal Component Analysis (PCA) is a linear dimensionality reduction technique that can be utilized for extracting information from a high-dimensional space by projecting it into a lower-dimensional subspace. It tries to preserve the essential parts that have more variation of the data and remove the non-essential parts with fewer variations.
In this tutorial, you will learn about PCA and how it can be leveraged to extract information from the data without any supervision using two popular datasets: Breast Cancer and CIFAR-10.

According to Wikipedia, PCA is a statistical procedure that uses an orthogonal transformation to convert a set of observations of possibly correlated variables (entities each of which takes on various numerical values) into a set of values of linearly uncorrelated variables called principal components.
