B. Tamilvanan, Dr. V. MuraliBhaskaran


Classification algorithms are efficiently utilized in the area of general medical diagnosis applications in order to identify the disorders in advance. One such disease, breast cancer is the most prevalent and earnest quandary with women in most of the developing countries. Many attempts are made in order to identify this problem with the objective of high precision and better accuracy. In this paper, an attempt is made with the most popular and efficient classification algorithms namely Naive Bayes, Best First Search(BFS), Random Search (RNS) and Genetic Search (GNS) to amend the efficiency of the detection, accuracy for the breast cancer dataset. As an objective of improving accuracy, an efficient dimensionality reduction technique is incorporated in this work. The performances of these approaches are evaluated using the metrics such as the precision, recall, f-measure and accuracy. From these measures it is clearly observed that Naive Bayes with Best First Search algorithm is able to achieve high accuracy rate along with minimum error rate when compared to other algorithms. The review can be stretched out to draw the execution of other characterization systems on an extended information set with more particular ascribes to get more exact outcomes.
