The effect of the characteristics of the dataset on the selection stability
Feature selection is an effective technique to reduce the dimensionality of a data set and to select relevant features for the domain problem. Recently, stability of feature selection methods has gained increasing attention. In fact, it has become a crucial factor in determining the goodness of a feature selection algorithm besides the learning performance. In this work, we conduct an extensive experimental study using verity of data sets and different well-known feature selection algorithms in order to study the behavior of these algorithms in terms of the stability.
