Using machine learning feature selection methods for classification purposes. Methods used will be: Forward Stepwise Logistic Regression, LASSO logistic regression, the C5.0 decision tree, Rpart Decision trees, and CHAID decision trees. Learning to use multiple methods to create interpretable classifiers. Also, simple bootstrapping and cross-fold validation methods will be implemented.
