    Abstract Tuberculosis is a dangerous disease to human life, and we need a lot of attempts to stop and reverse it. Significantly, in the COVID-19 pandemic, access to medical services for tuberculosis has become very difficult. The late detection of tuberculosis could lead to danger to patient health, even death. Vietnam is one of the countries heavily affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, and many residential areas as well as hospitals have to be isolated for a long time. Reality demands a fast and effective tuberculosis diagnosis solution to deal with the difficulty of accessing medical services, such as an automatic tuberculosis… More >

    Curve Classification Based on Mean-Variance Feature Weighting and Its Application

    Zewen Zhang1, Sheng Zhou1, Chunzheng Cao1,2,*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 2465-2480, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049605

    Abstract The classification of functional data has drawn much attention in recent years. The main challenge is representing infinite-dimensional functional data by finite-dimensional features while utilizing those features to achieve better classification accuracy. In this paper, we propose a mean-variance-based (MV) feature weighting method for classifying functional data or functional curves. In the feature extraction stage, each sample curve is approximated by B-splines to transfer features to the coefficients of the spline basis. After that, a feature weighting approach based on statistical principles is introduced by comprehensively considering the between-class differences and within-class variations of the coefficients. We also introduce a… More >

    Abstract In the era of advanced machine learning techniques, the development of accurate predictive models for complex medical conditions, such as thyroid cancer, has shown remarkable progress. Accurate predictive models for thyroid cancer enhance early detection, improve resource allocation, and reduce overtreatment. However, the widespread adoption of these models in clinical practice demands predictive performance along with interpretability and transparency. This paper proposes a novel association-rule based feature-integrated machine learning model which shows better classification and prediction accuracy than present state-of-the-art models.
