Regec-L1 accuracy on three datasets


What is Regec L1?   Learn more...
Supervised classification is one of the most used methods in machine learning. In case of data characterized by a large number of features, a critical issue is to deal with redundant or irrelevant information. In order to get and effective classifier it is necessary to identify a set of features, as small as possible, able to determine the discrimination. Regec-L1 is a classifier with embedded feature selection, based on the Regularized General Eigenvalue Classifier (ReGEC), equipped with a L1-norm regularization term. This approach is able to produce a remakable selection of the features, without losing accuracy in the classification. In that respect, our algorithm seems to compare favorably with the SVM\_L1 method.
