Classification of Erythemato-squamous diseases using Artificial Neural Network and Genetic algorithm

2020 International journal for research in engineering application & management  
This paper introduces a hybrid model using artificial neural network (ANN) and genetic algorithm (GA) to develop an efficient classification technique for classification of different categories of Erythemato-squamous diseases. Neural network has been extensively used in many applications like classification, regression, web mining, system identification and pattern recognition. Weight optimization in neural network has been a matter of concern for researchers in the field of soft computing. In

The dataset contains six different categories: psoriasis, seboreic dermatitis, lichen planus, pityriasis rosea, chronic dermatitis and pityriasis rubra pilaris of Erythemato-squamous diseases. The main aim of this paper is to determine the type of Eryhemato-Squamous disease using the hybrid model. The performance of the hybrid model is evaluated using statistical measures like accuracy, specificity and sensitivity. The accuracy of the proposed model is found to be 99.34% on test dataset. The experimental result shows the effectiveness of the hybrid model in classification of Erythematosquamous diseases.
