The paper aims to improve the multi-label classification performance using the feature reduction technique. According to the determination of the dependency among features based on fuzzy rough relation, features with the highest dependency score will be retained in the reduction set. The set is subsequently applied to enhance the performance of the multi-label classifier. We investigate the effectiveness of the proposed model againts the baseline via time complexity.
