How are the top 5000 features chosen during Data Filtering?

I have a dataset with more than 5000 features and was wondering: how is the data limited to 5000 features during data filtering?

I’ve seen in the “Can I perform PCA using all features (i.e. not filtered to a max. of 5000)?” post that a chosen ranking method is used. What is this method? If I input my data with over 5000 features and click the “None” option for data filtering, how are those 5000 features chosen?


We have provided the details and reasoning in the “Data Filtering” page. Your question is covered in the last sentence (see below)
