In case anyone is interested, I have modified the genetic algorithm
attribute selector so that you can limit the number of attributes it
selects. This is helpful when using the GA on datasets with very large
numbers of attributes such as micro-array gene expression experiments and
makes it much more feasible to use the GA as a "wrapper" feature selector
for time consuming classifiers.
If anyone would like to try it out, email me and I'll send you the code.
I'd welcome any suggestions for rewriting it in a more efficient and
aesthetically pleasing manner, but it does do the job...
