Cervical Cancer Diagnosis Using Intelligent Living Behavior of Artificial Jellyfish Optimized With Artificial Neural Network


Cervical cancer affects nearly 4% of the women across the globe and leads to mortality if not treated in early stage. A few decades before, the mortality rate was too high when compared to the present statistics. This is achieved as nowadays most of women are aware of this disease and undergo health examination mainly for screening cervical cancer on regular basis. But only the accurate diagnosis can be helpful for further treatment. Many works are carried out for accurate diagnosis and always have some limitations in accurate predictions. In this work, an efficient algorithm is proposed for the accurate diagnosis of cervical cancer. A meta-heuristic called artificial Jellyfish search optimizer (JS) algorithm is combined with artificial neural network (ANN) to tackle this problem. The proposed algorithm is called JellyfishSearch_ANN and is employed to classify the cervical cancer dataset with four type of targets based on the examination. The JellyfishSearch_ANN provides outstanding results among other classifiers taken for comparison and mainly its classification accuracy is found to be above 98.87% for all targets.
