Feature selection is a hot topic in current information science, especially in the field of pattern recognition. In this paper, feature selection algorithms are classified from different points of view. Several embranchments of feature selection and the development situation are introduced. Some difficulties in the theoretic analysis and application are involved. From a practicality angle, using support vector machine to select features is considered as the research direction in machine learning.
