**Principle Component Regression (PCR)** is an algorithm for **reducing the multi-collinearity** of a dataset. The problem we face in multi-variate linear regression (linear regression with a large number of features) is that although it may appear that we do fit the model well, there is normally a high-variance problem on the test set.
