Data mining applications are growing with the availability of large data; sometimes, handling large data is also a typical task. Segregation of the data for extracting useful information is inevitable for designing modern technologies. Considering this fact, the work proposes a chaos embed marine predator algorithm (CMPA) for feature selection. The optimization routine is designed with the aim of maximizing the classification accuracy with the optimal number of features selected. The well-known benchmark data sets have been chosen for validating the performance of the proposed algorithm. A comparative analysis of the performance with some well-known algorithms advocates the applicability of the proposed algorithm. Further, the analysis has been extended to some of the well-known chaotic algorithms; first, the binary versions of these algorithms are developed and then the comparative analysis of the performance has been conducted on the basis of mean features selected, classification accuracy obtained and fitness function values. Statistical significance tests have also been conducted to establish the significance of the proposed algorithm.
