Because of the high dimensionality of the microarray data sets, feature selection (FS) has become an important challenge in molecular classification. Using the degree of differential prioritization (DDP) between relevance and antiredundancy, our proposed DDP-based FS technique is capable of achieving better accuracies than those previously reported, using a smaller predictor set. However, previously, we have neither devised nor used any method for determining the value of the DDP to be used for the data set of interest before the FS process. In this article, we propose a system for predicting the optimal value of the DDP, which costs less computationally than conventional tuning while maintaining the independence of the FS technique from the type of underlying classifier used.
