CCAGFA: Bayesian canonical correlation analysis and group factor analysis
R package CCAGFA implements variational Bayesian solution for canonical
correlation analysis, inter-battery factor analysis and group factor
analysis. The package contains code for learning the model and
some supporting functionality for interpretation.
The Bayesian CCA model as implemented here was originally presented by Virtanen et al. (2011),
but a more comprehensive treatment is found in Klami et al. (2013). The latter also explains
the BIBFA model. The GFA extends CCA to multiple data sources (or groups of variables), providing interpretable linear
factorizations that describe variation shared by all possible subsets of sources. It was presented
by Virtanen et al. (2012).
The code is available in CRAN at page http://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/CCAGFA/.
