Principal Component Analysis for Distributed Data Sets with Updating
Identifying the patterns of large data sets is a key requirement in data mining. A powerful technique for this purpose is the principal component analysis (PCA). PCA-based clustering algorithms are effective when the data sets are found in the same location. In applications where the large data sets are physically far apart, moving huge amounts of data to a single location can become an impractical, or even impossible, task. A way around this problem was proposed in [10], where truncated singular value decompositions (SVDs) are computed locally and used to reduce the communication costs. Unfortunately, truncated SVDs introduce local approximation errors that could add up and would adversely affect the accuracy of the final PCA. In this paper, we introduce a new method to compute the PCA without incurring local approximation errors. In addition, we consider the situation of updating the PCA when new data arrive at the various locations.
