Data mining is one of the major areas of research. Clustering is one of the main functionalities of datamining. High dimensionality is one of the main issues of clustering and Dimensionality reduction can be used as a solution to this problem. The present work makes a comparative study of dimensionality reduction techniques such as t-distributed stochastic neighbour embedding and probabilistic principal component analysis in the context of clustering. High dimensional data have been reduced to low dimensional data using dimensionality reduction techniques such as t-distributed stochastic neighbour embedding and probabilistic principal component analysis. Cluster analysis has been performed on the high dimensional data as well as the low dimensional data sets obtained through t-distributed stochastic neighbour embedding and Probabilistic principal component analysis with varying number of clusters. Mean squared error; time and space have been considered as parameters for comparison. The results obtained show that time taken to convert the high dimensional data into low dimensional data using probabilistic principal component analysis is higher than the time taken to convert the high dimensional data into low dimensional data using t-distributed stochastic neighbour embedding.The space required by the data set reduced through Probabilistic principal component analysis is less than the storage space required by the data set reduced through t-distributed stochastic neighbour embedding.
