Abstract

Abstract-Cardiac arrhythmia is one of the major causes of human death, and most of the time it cannot be predicted well in advance at the right time. Computational intelligence algorithms can help in extracting the hidden patterns of biological datasets. This paper explores the use of advanced and intelligent computational algorithms for automated detection, classification and clustering of cardiac arrhythmia (CA). Application of Fuzzy C-Mean and Extended Fuzzy C-Mean method to the arrhythmia dataset (165 normal healthy and 138 with CA) demonstrated their good CA classification capabilities. Fuzzy C Mean algorithm was able to classify the two group of data set with an overall accuracy of 97.2% [sensitivity 96.4%, specificity 98.12% and area under the receiver operating curve (AUC-ROC = 0.963)]. The classification accuracy improved significantly when GK-based extended Fuzzy was employed, and an overall accuracy of 99.14% was achieved (sensitivity 97.11%, specificity 99.18% and AUC-ROC = 0.995). These accuracy results were respectively, 19.02%, 7%, 9.14% and 11.06% higher when compared to multi-input single layer perceptron (SLP), feed forward back propagation (FFBP), self organizing maps (SOM) and support vector machine (SVM). The performance measures of fuzzy techniques were found to be better if a Principal Component Analysis (PCA) technique was used to preprocess the arrhythmia datasets.
