Abstract

    In data mining and machine learning methods, it is traditionally assumed that training data, test data, and the data that will be processed in the future, should have the same feature space distribution. This is a condition that will not happen in the real world. In order to overcome this challenge, domain adaptation-based methods are used. One of the existing challenges in domain adaptation-based methods is to select the most efficient features so that they can also show the most efficiency in the destination database. In this paper, a new feature selection method based on deep reinforcement learning is proposed. In the proposed method, in order to select the best and most appropriate features, the essential policies in deep reinforcement learning are defined, and then the selection features are applied for training random forest, k-nearest neighborhood and support vector machine classifiers. The trained classifiers with the considered features are evaluated on the target database. The results are evaluated with the criteria of accuracy, sensitivity, positive and negative predictive rates in the classifiers. The achieved results show the superiority of the proposed method of feature selection when used in domain adaptation. By implementing the RF classifier on the VisDA-2018 database and the Syn2Real database, the classification accuracy in the feature selection of the proposed deep learning reinforcement has increased compared to the two-feature selection of Laplace monitoring and feature selection states. The classification sensitivity with the help of SVM classifier on the Syn2Real databases had the highest values in the feature selection state of the proposed deep learning reinforcement. The obtained number 100 is a positive predictive rate in the Syn2Real database with the help of SVM classifier and in the case of selecting the proposed feature, it indicates its superiority. The negative predictive rate in the Syn2Real database in the state of feature selection of the proposed deep reinforcement learning was 100%, which showed its superiority in comparison with 90.1% in the state of selecting the Laplace monitoring feature. Gmean in KNN classifier on the Syn2Real database has improved in the feature selection state of the proposed deep learning reinforcement in comparison to without feature selection state.
