Abstract

Feature selection is a fundamental data preparation task in any data mining objective. Deciding on the best feature selection technique to use for a specific context is difficult and time-consuming. Ensemble learning can alleviate this issue. Ensemble methods are based on the assumption that the aggregate results of a group of experts with average knowledge can often be superior to those of highly knowledgeable individual ones. The present study aims to propose a heterogeneous ensemble feature selection for heart disease classification. The proposed ensembles were constructed by combining the results of five univariate filter feature selection techniques using two aggregation methods. The performance of the proposed techniques was evaluated with four classifiers and six heart disease datasets. The empirical experiments showed that applying ensemble feature ranking produced very promising results compared to single ones and previous studies.
