Due to the explosive growth of electronically stored information, automatic methods must be developed to aid users in maintaining and using this abundance of information effectively. In particular, the sheer volume of redundancy present must be dealt with, leaving only the information-rich data to be processed. This paper presents an approach, based on an integrated use of fuzzy-rough sets and Ant Colony Optimization (ACO), to greatly reduce this data redundancy. The work is applied to the problem of webpage categorization, considerably reducing dimensionality with minimal loss of information.
