Ant Colony Optimization for Feature Subset Selection

  title={Ant Colony Optimization for Feature Subset Selection},
  author={Ahmed Al-Ani},
The Ant Colony Optimization (ACO) is a metaheuristic inspired by the behavior of real ants in their search for the shortest paths to food sources. It has recently attracted a lot of attention and has been successfully applied to a number of different optimization problems. Due to the importance of the feature selection problem and the potential of ACO, this paper presents a novel method that utilizes the ACO algorithm to implement a feature subset search procedure. Initial results obtained… CONTINUE READING
