1. Feature Selection Methods
Wrapper feature selection methods
create many models with different subsets of input features and select those features that result in the best performing model according to a performance metric
Filter feature selection methods
use statistical techniques to evaluate the relationship between each input variable and the target variable, and these scores are used as the basis to choose (filter) those input variables that will be used in the model.
intrinsic feature selection methods.
some machine learning algorithms that perform feature selection automatically as part of learning the model
