Paper Abstract

The paper presents a simple but effective feature assessment scheme that can be employed for a quick optimal evaluation of the individual discrimination potentials of a large number of features. The approach, Class Overlap Region Partitioning Scheme (CORPS), can be used either as a stand alone tool or as a front end to more complex combinatorial feature selection procedures such as branch and bound and genetic algorithms. The approach has the flexibility to permit imposition of a bias on the evaluation in favor of reducing either of the two possible types of errors in a binary decision process, for example false alarm or leakage in a target detection problem. Details of the associated algorithmic and operational procedures are furnished to facilitate wide usage of this new tool.
