Alzheimer’s illness is an ailment of mind which results in mental confusion, forgetfulness and many other mental problems. It effects physical health of a person too. When treating a patient with Alzheimer's disease, a proper diagnosis is crucial, especially into earlier phases of condition as when patients are informed of the risk of the disease, they can take preventative steps before irreparable brain damage occurs. The majority of machine detection techniques are constrained by congenital (present at birth) data, however numerous recent studies have used computers for Alzheimer's disease diagnosis. The first stages of Alzheimer's disease can be diagnosed, but illness itself cannot be predicted since prediction is only helpful before it really manifests. Alzheimer’s has high risk symptoms that effects both physical and mental health of a patient. Risks include confusion, concentration difficulties and much more, so with such symptoms it becomes important to detect this disease at its early stages. Significance of detecting this disease is the patient gets a better chance of treatment and medication. Hence our research helps to detect the disease at its early stages. Particularly when used with brain MRI scans, deep learning has emerged as a popular tool for the early identification of AD. Here we are using a 12- layer CNN that has the layers four convolutional, two pooling, two flatten, one dense and three activation functions. As CNN is well-known for pattern detection and image processing, here, accuracy of our model is 97.80%.
