This paper presents a new feature selection (FS) algorithm based on the wrapper approach using neural networks (NNs). The vital aspect of this algorithm is the automatic determination of NN architectures during the FS process. Our algorithm uses a constructive approach involving correlation information in selecting features and determining NN architectures. We call this algorithm as constructive approach selecting less correlated (distinct) features if they enhance accuracy of NNs. Such an… CONTINUE READING
