A method for selecting the relevant dimensions for high-dimensional classification in singular vector spaces

Dawit G. Tadesse, Mark Carpenter

Abstract

In this paper, we give a new feature selection algorithm for the binary class classification problem in sparse high-dimensional spaces. Singular value decomposition (SVD) is a popular dimension reduction method in higher-dimensional classification. The traditional SVD method begins by ranking the Singular Dimensions (SDs) from largest singular value to the smallest. However, when the number of signals is fewer than the number of noise, the first few ranked SDs are not necessarily the best for classification. We demonstrate, theoretically and empirically, that our method efficiently selects the SDs most appropriate for classification and significantly reduces the misclassification error. We also apply our method to real data text mining applications.
