Abstract
Practical pattern classification and knowledge discovery problems require
selection of a subset of attributes or features (from a much larger set)
to represent the patterns to be classified. This paper presents an
approach to the multi-criteria optimization problem of feature subset
selection using a genetic algorithm. Our experiments demonstrate the
feasibility of this approach for feature subset selection in automated
design of neural networks for pattern classification and knowledge discovery.
