Feature selection is a process to select a subset of original features. It can improve the efficiency and accuracy by removing redundant and irrelevant terms. Feature selection is commonly used in machine learning, and has been wildly applied in many fields. we propose a new feature selection method. This is an integrative hybrid method. It first uses Affinity Propagation and SVM sensitivity analysis to generate feature subset, and then use forward selection and backward elimination method to optimize the feature subset based on feature ranking. Besides, we apply this feature selection method to solve a new problem, Human resource selection. The data is acquired by questionnaire survey. The simulation results show that the proposed feature selection method is effective, it not only reduced human resource features but also increased the classification performance.
