The new plug-in for D-Wave’s Ocean™ SDK provides functionality to perform feature selection for machine learning (ML) workflows. It integrates with scikit-learn, a Python library that features various classification, regression and clustering algorithms. Feature selection is a process of determining the most important features of a model for use in model training and overall performance. AI applications are providing increasing value to businesses and D-Wave’s goal is to make the use of AI with their Leap hybrid cloud service easier and faster for end users. Additional information about this plug-in can be found in a news release announcing its introduction here and readers can access the code for the plug-in on a GitHub site here.
