Feature construction

Feature construction

This video was recorded at PASCAL Bootcamp in Machine Learning, Vilanova 2007. This course covers feature selection fundamentals and applications. The students will first be reminded of the basics of machine learning algorithms and the problem of overfitting avoidance. In the wrapper setting, feature selection will be introduced as a special case of the model selection problem. Methods to derive principled feature selection algorithms will be reviewed as well as heuristic method, which work well in practice. One class will be devoted to feature construction techniques. Finally, a lecture will be devoted to the connections between feature section and causal discovery. The class will be accompanied by several lab sessions. The course will be attractive to students who like playing with data... Show More
