Mixed feature selection based on granulation and approximation
Feature subset selection presents a common challenge for the applications where data with tens or hundreds of features are available. Existing feature selection algorithms are mainly designed for dealing with numerical or categorical attributes. However, data usually comes with a mixed format in real-world applications. In this paper, we generalize Pawlak's rough set model into d neighborhood rough set model and k-nearest-neighbor rough set model, where the objects with numerical attributes are granulated with d neighborhood relations or k-nearest-neighbor relations, while objects with categorical features are granulated with equivalence relations. Then the induced information granules are used to approximate the decision with lower and upper approximations. We compute the lower approximations of decision to measure the significance of attributes. Based on the proposed models, we give the definition of significance of mixed features and construct a greedy attribute reduction algo...
