Collect each performance of a Backward elimination

JohnQuestJohnQuest Member Posts: 15 Contributor II
edited June 2019 in Help
I am using rapid miner for my data mining research, I used backward elimination for my feature (attribute) selections. I was wondering how to set up the process in order to gather each performance for the backward elimination. For example: feature set one (A, B, C , D, E, F), performance one(…); feature set two(A, B, C, D, E), performance two(…); ….

I am currently processing a data table with 21 features and 157000 items. A brute force feature selection simply overload my computer memory. I was wonder how to find the best combination as well as plot a graph that shows which combination of features performance low, and which combination performance high.

Thanks in advance for your kindly support.

    This script reads the iris dataset, splits it in a test and training set and then logs performance for each subset on the test set.

    I had the same problem, hope this helps.
    If you need further refinement let me know.

    Is this quirky script still needed?

    Or can you now log the performance of a sub process directly?
    And more importantly log the "attributes used" at each iteration of attribute selection.
