Bayesian Top Scoring Pairs for Feature Selection Conference Paper uri icon


  • © 2017 IEEE. We propose a novel feature selection approach based on the Bayesian Top Scoring Pairs (BTSP) method. We compare its performance against well-known feature selection methods, under SVM, k-NN and NB classification rules, by means of an extensive numerical experiment using real gene-expression data sets. Results demonstrate the promise of the BTSP feature selection approach in the analysis of high-dimensional biological data.
