Feature Selection by Means of a Feature Weighting

  title={Feature Selection by Means of a Feature Weighting},
  author={ApproachM. Scherf and Wilfried Brauer},
Selecting a set of features which is optimal for a given classiication task is one of the central problems in machine learning. We address the problem using the exible and robust lter technique EUBAFES. EUBAFES is based on a feature weighting approach which computes binary feature weights and therefore a solution in the feature selection sense and also gives detailed information about feature relevance by continuous weights. Moreover the user gets not only one but several potentially optimal… CONTINUE READING
