  • In classification, feature selection is an important data pre-processing technique, but it is a difficult problem due mainly to the large search space. Particle swarm optimisation (PSO) is an efficient evolutionary computation technique. However, the traditional personal best and global best updating mechanism in PSO limits its performance for feature selection and the potential of PSO for feature selection has not been fully investigated. This paper proposes three new initialisation strategies… CONTINUE READING
