Feature Selection for Ensembles

  title={Feature Selection for Ensembles},
  author={David W. Opitz},
The traditional motivation behind feature selection algorithms is to find the best subset of features for a task using one particular learning algorithm. Given the recent success of ensembles, however, we investigate the notion of ensemble feature selection in this paper. This task is harder than traditional feature selection in that one not only needs to find features germane to the learning task and learning algorithm, but one also needs to find a set of feature subsets that will promote… CONTINUE READING
