Feature Selection with the Boruta Package

Article English OPEN
Miron B. Kursa; Witold R. Rudnicki;

This article describes a <b>R</b> package <b>Boruta</b>, implementing a novel feature selection algorithm for finding emph{all relevant variables}. The algorithm is designed as a wrapper around a Random Forest classification algorithm. It iteratively removes the feature... View more
