Other applications

Due to the close connection between ICA and projection pursuit on the one hand, and between ICA and factor analysis on the other, it should be possible to use ICA on many of the applications where projection pursuit and factor analysis are used. These include (exploratory) data analysis in such areas as economics, psychology, and other social sciences, as well as density estimation, and regression [46,57].
