ABSTRACT The development of an effective diabetes diagnosis system by taking advantage of computational intelligence is regarded as a primary goal nowadays. Many approaches based on artificial network and machine learning algorithms have been developed and tested against diabetes datasets, which were mostly related to individuals of Pima Indian origin. Yet, despite high accuracies of up to 99% in predicting the correct diabetes diagnosis, none of these approaches have reached clinical application so far. One reason for this failure may be that diabetologists or clinical investigators are sparsely informed about, or trained in the use of, computational diagnosis tools. Therefore, this article aims at sketching out an outline of the wide range of options, recent developments, and potentials in machine learning algorithms as diabetes diagnosis tools. One focus is on supervised and unsupervised methods, which have made significant impacts in the detection and diagnosis of diabetes at primary and advanced stages. Particular attention is paid to algorithms that show promise in improving diabetes diagnosis. A key advance has been the development of a more in-depth understanding and theoretical analysis of critical issues related to algorithmic construction and learning theory. These include trade-offs for maximizing generalization performance, use of physically realistic constraints, and incorporation of prior knowledge and uncertainty. The review presents and explains the most accurate algorithms, and discusses advantages and pitfalls of methodologies. This should provide a good resource for researchers from all backgrounds interested in computational intelligence-based diabetes diagnosis methods, and allows them to extend their knowledge into this kind of research.

    ABSTRACT: Diabetes Mellitus is a major health problem all over the world. Many classification algorithms have been applied for its diagnoses and treatment. In this paper, a hybrid algorithm of Modified-Particle Swarm Optimization and Least Squares-Support Vector Machine is proposed for the classification of type II DM patients. LS-SVM algorithm is used for classification by finding optimal hyper-plane which separates various classes. Since LS-SVM is so sensitive to the changes of its parameter values, Modified-PSO algorithm is used as an optimization technique for LS-SVM parameters. This will Guarantee the robustness of the hybrid algorithm by searching for the optimal values for LS-SVM parameters. The pro-posed Algorithm is implemented and evaluated using Pima Indians Diabetes Data set from UCI repository of machine learning databases. It is also compared with different classifier algorithms which were applied on the same database. The experimental results showed the superiority of the proposed algorithm which could achieve an average classification accuracy of 97.833%.

    ABSTRACT: Automated diagnosis of diseases has forever been of interest as an interdisciplinary study among computer and medical science researchers. Detection of hepatitis is really a big problem for general practitioners. An expert doctor commonly takes decisions by evaluating the current test results of a patient or by comparing the patient with other patients with the same condition with reference to the previous decisions. In this study, various models were generated by using mixture of experts as a classification method. Further, Model having very good accuracy of 97.37% with least minimum square error was selected for the prediction of disease. This approach can be used for easy diagnosis of hepatitis for a large number of populations by incorporating the profile of more samples in the training stage.
