A Genetic Algorithm Based Intuitionistic Fuzzification Technique for Attribute Selection


This paper initiates perceptions and algorithms of feature selection, survey of existing feature selection algorithms and assesses diverse algorithms with a classifying frame based on search approaches, valuation criteria, and provides strategy in selecting feature selection algorithms. A unifying platform is projected to continue our efforts headed for building an incorporated system for intelligent feature selection. Feature selection intends to reduce the dimensionality of patterns for classification by choosing the most informative instead of irrelevant and/or redundant features. In this proposed work Intuitionistic fuzzy based feature clustering is proposed for grouping features based on the degree of membership and degree of indeterminacy among the attributes and clusters. In this proposed work a novel approach which uses an Intuitionistic fuzzy version of k-means has been introduced for grouping interdependent features. Genetic algorithm reinstating which is the variation of traditional genetic algorithm is then applied to appraise whether the measured feature is independent of class labels; hence, it leads to eliminate unrelated clusters to classification process and progress the selection of features. The proposed method achieves improvement on classification accuracy and perhaps to select less number of features which show the way to simplification of learning task to a big extent. The Experiment results have been demonstrated by the good performance and also find good enough subset features of this method on using UCI benchmark datasets that are for data mining methods such as Breast Cancer, Sensor and Iris Records.
