Canonical-Correlation-Based Fast Feature Selection

by   Sikai Zhang, et al.

This paper proposes a canonical-correlation-based filter method for feature selection. The sum of squared canonical correlation coefficients is adopted as the feature ranking criterion. The proposed method boosts the computational speed of the ranking criterion in greedy search. The supporting theorems developed for the feature selection method are fundamental to the understanding of the canonical correlation analysis. In empirical studies, a synthetic dataset is used to demonstrate the speed advantage of the proposed method, and eight real datasets are applied to show the effectiveness of the proposed feature ranking criterion in both classification and regression. The results show that the proposed method is considerably faster than the definition-based method, and the proposed ranking criterion is competitive compared with the seven mutual-information-based criteria.
