An adaptive methodology to discretize and select features

Miguel Ángel Álvarez de la Concepción, Luis González Abril, Luis Miguel Soria Morillo, Juan Antonio Ortega Ramírez


A lot of significant data describing the behavior or/and actions of systems can be collected in several domains. These data define some aspects, called features, that can be clustered in several classes. A qualitative or quantitative value for each feature is stored from measurements or observations. In this paper, the problem of finding independent features for getting the best accuracy on classification problems is considered. Obtaining these features is the main objective of this work, where an automatic method to select features is proposed. The method extends the functionality of Ameva coefficient to use it in other tasks of machine learning where it has not been defined.
