Heart diseases, Artificial Intelligence, Artificial Fish Swarm Optimization (AFSO), Recurrent Neural Networks


The main objective of this study is to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) technique to diagnose normal and abnormal cardiac disease situations. This research considers couple of benchmark database Cleveland and Hungarain from UCI data repository. This research considers RNN (Recurrent Neural Network) – A LSTM (Long Short-Term Memory) technique diagnoses heart diseases effectively. It is apparent from the investigation that tuning weights play a vital role is enhancing the output performance. Identifying the optimal weights through manual consumes more time and complex is process. The research involves optimization techniques to resolve the above issue. The optimization technique involve during process are PSO (Particle Swarm Optimization) and AFSO (Artificial Fish Swarm Optimization). The results shows that optimization involves in this process enhance the process effectively over traditional approach. AFSO associate RNN-LSTM achieves 98.34% accuracy that is better over comparative techniques.
