For instance, ask a bunch of people a bunch of survey questions, in hopes of
predicting some value (for instance, whether or not these people will
die of a heart attack in the next three years). After waiting three years,
discover that some of the questions didn't really help you predict the
outcome. Remove them from the dataset. That's dimension reduction.
