Heart Disease Prediction Using Modified Version of LeNet-5 Model

By Shaimaa Mahmoud Mohamed Gaber Gamal Farouk Arabi Keshk

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Dec. 2022

Particularly compared to other diseases, heart disease (HD) claims the lives of the greatest number of people worldwide. Many priceless lives can be saved with the help of early and effective disease identification. Medical tests, an electrocardiogram (ECG) signal, heart sounds, computed tomography (CT) images, etc. can all be used to identify HD. Of all sorts, HD signal recognition from ECG signals is crucial. The ECG samples from the participants were taken into consideration as the necessary inputs for the HD detection model in this study. Many researchers analyzed the risk factors of heart disease and used machine learning or deep learning techniques for the early detection of heart patients. In this paper, we propose a modified version of the LeNet-5 model to be used as a transfer model for cardiovascular disease patients. The modified version is compared to the standard version using four evaluation metrics: accuracy, precision, recall, and F1-score. The achieved results indicated that when the LeNet-5 model was modified by increasing the number of used filters, this increased the model's ability to handle the ECGs dataset and extract the most important features from it. The results also showed that the modified version of the LeNet-5 model based on the ECGs image dataset improved accuracy by 9.14 percentage points compared to the standard LeNet-5 model.

Predicting Future Products Rate using Machine Learning Algorithms

DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Oct. 2020

Opinion mining in social networks data is considered as one of most important research areas because a large number of users interact with different topics on it. This paper discusses the problem of predicting future products rate according to users’ comments. Researchers interacted with this problem by using machine learning algorithms (e.g. Logistic Regression, Random Forest Regression, Support Vector Regression, Simple Linear Regression, Multiple Linear Regression, Polynomial Regression and Decision Tree). However, the accuracy of these techniques still needs to be improved. In this study, we introduce an approach for predicting future products rate using LR, RFR, and SVR. Our data set consists of tweets and its rate from 1:5. The main goal of our approach is improving the prediction accuracy about existing techniques. SVR can predict future product rate with a Mean Squared Error (MSE) of 0.4122, Linear Regression model predict with a Mean Squared Error of 0.4986 and Random Forest Regression can predict with a Mean Squared Error of 0.4770. This is better than the existing approaches accuracy.
