报告摘要:We consider the problem of best subset selection in regression models, where the goal is to find for every model size k, a subset of k features that best fits the response. This is particularly challenging when the total available number of features is very large compared to the number of data samples. I will introduce COMBSS, a novel continuous optimization method that identifies a solution path, a small set of models of varying size, that consists of candidates for the best subset in the model. COMBSS turns out to be fast, making subset selection possible when the number of features is well in excess of thousands. I will present simulation results to show its performance in comparison to the existing popular methods including Lasso, Mixed Integer Optimization, and Forward Stepwise. Because of the overall outstanding performance COMBSS, framing the best subset selection challenge as a continuous optimization problem opens new research directions for feature extraction for a large variety of regression models.
