Abstract: In this paper, an advanced novel feature selection (FS) algorithm is presented, the hybrid genetic algorithm (GA) with Bayes naïve (BN), which selects the most relevant optimum feature subset to increase the classification accuracy performance and computational timesaving. Based on GA, the proposed algorithm uses the highest genetic operator's values that involve a consistent classification accuracy. The performance of the algorithm is evaluated using 34 UCI/KEEL datasets from different domains. The classification accuracy is compared with recent literature works. On the other hand, the algorithm is also compared with an implemented sequential forward selection (SFS) technique coupled with different ML methods. The experimental results show the effectiveness of the algorithm.
