Abstract

A new measure for attribute selection, called GD, is proposed. The GD measure is based on Information Theory and allows to detect the interdependence between attributes. This measure is based on a quadratic form of the Mántaras distance and a matrix called Transinformation Matrix. In order to test the quality of the proposed measure, it is compared with other two feature selection methods, namely Mántaras distance and Relief algorithms. The comparison is done over 19 datasets along with three different induction algorithms.
