Dimensionality reduction of a feature set is a common preprocessing step used for pattern recognition, classification applications and in compression schemes. Rough Set Theory is one of the popular methods used, and can be shown to be optimal using different optimality criteria. This paper proposes a novel method for dimensionality reduction of a feature set by choosing a subset of the original features that contains most of the essential information, using the same criteria as the ACO hybridized with Rough Set Theory. We call this method Rough ACO. The proposed method is successfully applied for choosing the best feature combinations and then applying the Upper and Lower Approximations to find the reduced set of features from a gene expression data.
