Increasing and Decreasing Returns and Losses in Mutual Information Feature Subset Selection

Abstract

Mutual information between a target variable and a feature subset is extensively used as a feature subset selection criterion. This work contributes to a more thorough understanding of the evolution of the mutual information as a function of the number of features selected. We describe decreasing returns and increasing returns behavior in sequential forward… (More)
