dc.description.abstract The main aim of feature selection is to determine a minimal feature subset from a problem domain while retaining a suitably high accuracy in representing the original features. In real world problems FS is a must due to the abundance of noisy, irrelevant or misleading features. However, current methods are inadequate at finding optimal reductions. This chapter presents a feature selection mechanism based on Ant Colony Optimization in an attempt to combat this. The method is then applied to the problem of finding optimal feature subsets in the fuzzy-rough data reduction process. The present work is applied to two very different challenging tasks, namely web classification and complex systems monitoring. en
