     Chi-Squared feature selection. It operates on labeled data with categorical features.
ChiSqSelector uses the
     [Chi-Squared test of independence]( to
decide which
    -features to choose. It supports three selection methods: `numTopFeatures`, `percentile`,
    +features to choose. It supports five selection methods: `numTopFeatures`, `percentile`,
`fpr`, `fdr`, `fwe`:
     * `numTopFeatures` chooses a fixed number of top features according to a chi-squared
test. This is akin to yielding the features with the most predictive power.
     * `percentile` is similar to `numTopFeatures` but chooses a fraction of all features
instead of a fixed number.
     * `fpr` chooses all features whose p-value is below a threshold, thus controlling the
false positive rate of selection.
    +* `fdr` uses the [Benjamini-Hochberg procedure](
to choose all features whose false discovery rate is below a threshold.
    +* `fwe` chooses all features whose whose p-values is below a threshold, thus controlling
the family-wise error rate of selection.
