Presented under the XVIII Conference of the Spanish Association for Artificial Intelligence (CAEPIA), which took place in Granada between 23 and 26 October, this work proposes a method for features selection. The most innovative character of the method is that it selects different features for different observations.
CAEPIA is a biennial forum aiming at giving researchers from all over the world the opportunity to present and discuss the latest scientific and technological advances in the Artificial Intelligence area. This way, it is intended to facilitate the dissemination of new ideas and experiences, to strengthen connections between different research groups, to promote the knowledge transfer and to help disseminate new developments to the society.
