Abstract : In the context of big data, granular computing has recently been implemented by some mathematical tools, especially Rough Set Theory (RST). As a key topic of rough set theory, feature selection has been investigated to adapt the related granular concepts of RST to deal with large amounts of data, leading to the development of the distributed RST version. However, despite of its scalability, the distributed RST version faces a key challenge tied to the partitioning of the feature search space in the distributed environment while guaranteeing data dependency. Therefore, in this manuscript, we propose a new distributed RST version based on Locality Sensitive Hashing (LSH), named LSH-dRST, for big data feature selection. LSH-dRST uses LSH to match similar features into the same bucket and maps the generated buckets into partitions to enable the splitting of the universe in a more efficient way. More precisely, in this paper, we perform a detailed analysis of the performance of LSH-dRST by comparing it to the standard distributed RST version, which is based on a random partitioning of the universe. We demonstrate that our LSH-dRST is scalable when dealing with large amounts of data. We also demonstrate * This work is part of a project that has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 702527. 2 Z.
