In the era of big data, extracting the most relevant variables has become the essential component to many data analytics problems, and feature selection is developing into an area of intense interest for both academic and business practitioners. We will survey a wide array of methods and algorithms that have been developed for feature selection, and give important guidelines for their business applications, with a special focus on ensemble modeling approach, or how to combine multiple methods as well as domain knowledge effectively in one feature selection process, and how to assess and select different approaches in practice.
