Factor Analysis Using Two Stages Neural Network Architecture

Sandeep Kumar, Deepak Kumar, and Rashid Ali

Abstract—Factor Analysis is the process of finding a suitable representation of the data in terms of lesser number of variables. There are a number of application areas where factor analysis is widely used e.g. signal processing, statistics, stock marketing, forecasting, approximation, compression, security, medical sciences etc. In this paper we will show that a very effective factor analysis scheme can be developed using a feed forward neural network. Our approach has the advantage of being able to analyze very large data sets while preserving the nature of the data.

Index Terms—Factor analysis, neural network, BPN, learning, information gain.
