A hybrid approach for feature subset selection using ant colony optimization and artificial neural networks
"Feature selection deals with selecting a subset of feature from a data set to predict the output with an acceptable level of accuracy. Feature selection problems have been solved previously by researchers using various meta-heuristic algorithms like branch and bound method, genetic algorithm, simulated annealing etc. This thesis presents a hybrid approach using artificial neural network and ant colony optimization, which would find out the inter-variable relationship amongst a subset of feature, if any, to predict the output accurately"--Abstract, leaf iv.
