Feature Selection Library (MATLAB Toolbox). Feature Selection Library (FSLib) is a widely applicable MATLAB library for Feature Selection (FS). FS is an essential component of machine learning and data mining which has been studied for many years under many different conditions and in diverse scenarios. These algorithms aim at ranking and selecting a subset of relevant features according to their degrees of relevance, preference, or importance as defined in a specific application. Because feature selection can reduce the amount of features used for training classification models, it alleviates the effect of the curse of dimensionality, speeds up the learning process, improves model’s performance, and enhances data understanding. This short report provides an overview of the feature selection algorithms included in the FSLib MATLAB toolbox among filter, embedded, and wrappers methods.
