Feature selection is commonly used to reduce dimensionality of datasets with tens or hundreds of thousands of features. A major problem of text categorization is the high dimensionality of the feature space; therefore, feature selection is the most important step in text categorization. This paper presents a novel feature selection algorithm that is based on ant colony optimization. Ant colony optimization algorithm is inspired by observation on real ants in their search for the shortest paths… CONTINUE READING
