In this paper we describe an extension of the information theoretical FCBF (Fast Correlation Based Feature Selection) algorithm. The extension, called FCBF#, enables FCBF to select any given size of feature subset and it selects features in a different order than the FCBF. We find out that the extended FCBF algorithm results in more accurate classifiers.
