# Feature filtering -------------------------------------------------------
# Combine all features in one data frame and apply feature selection methods from the FSelector package.
# a) Which features are selected?
# b) Can you explain why those features might be selected?
#combine all datasets
alldata <- cbind(customers, features)
#simple call of the feature selection function
cfs(pNumResidents ~ ., alldata)
#Problem: other dependant variables are selected -> only use relevant variables in feature setection!
#create a vector containing all feature names
all.features <- setdiff(colnames(alldata), c("VID", "residents.numAdult",
"residents.numChildren", "housing.type","pNumResidents"))
#correlation based filter (2 similar ways to call the method)
