Hi, I wondering the difference between Forward Selection and Optimize Weights (Forward) ? I read this article https://community.rapidminer.com/discussion/35281/feature-selection-part-1-feature-weighting, it says Forward Selection is one of the Wrapper method of feature selection. But how about Optimize Weights (Forward) ? Is it a hybrid method ?
