This paper proposes a novel feature selection approach formulated based on the Fish School Search (FSS) optimization algorithm, intended to cope with premature convergence. In order to use this population based optimization algorithm in feature selection problems, we propose the use of a binary encoding scheme for the internal mechanisms of the fish school search, emerging the binary fish school search (BFSS). The suggested algorithm was combined with fuzzy modeling in a wrapper approach for… CONTINUE READING
