Predicting Diabetes using machine learning technique (Support vector machine )


Diabetes mellitus is one of the most serious health challenges in both developing and developed countries. According to the International Diabetes Federation, there are 285 million diabetic people worldwide. This total is expected to rise to 380 million within 20 years. Due to its importance, a design of classifier for the detection of Diabetes disease with optimal cost and better performance is the need of the age.The proposed method uses Support Vector Machine (SVM), a machine learning method as the classifier for diagnosis of diabetes. The machine learning method focus on classifying diabetes disease from high dimensional medical dataset. The experimental results obtained show that support vector machine can be successfully used for diagnosing diabetes disease.
