Scalable Rough Feature Selection


Feature selection is an important topic in data mining and machine learning, which aims to select an optimal feature subset for building effective and explainable prediction models. The use of rough set theory for the task of feature selection has proven remarkably popular and has been applied to many real world applications in recent years. Rough hypercuboid approach is an emerging technique that can be applied to eliminate irrelevant and redundant features especially for the inexactness problem in approximate numerical classification. Two critical characteristics of volume and velocity associated with big data presents numerous challenges for traditional rough feature selection. This talk will introduce our recent research works targeting scalable rough feature selection from multiple perspectives: Spark rough hypercuboid approach for scalable feature selection, Large-scale meta-heuristic feature selection based on BPSO assisted rough hypercuboid approach, and RHDOFS: a distributed online algorithm towards scalable streaming feature selection.
