Feature selection is one of the issues that have been raised in the discussion of machine learning and statistical identification model. We have provided definitions for feature selection and definitions needed to understand this issue, we check. Then, different methods for this problem were based on the type of product, as well as how to evaluate candidate subsets of features, we classify the following categories. As in previous studies may not have understood that different methods of assessment data into consideration, We propose a new approach for assessing similarity of data to understand the relationship between diversity and stability of the data is selected. After review and meta-heuristic algorithms to implement the algorithm found that the cluster has better performance compared with other algorithms for feature selection sustained.
