Heart disease is very common in today’s day and age, with death rates climbing up the numbers every year. Prediction of heart disease cases is a topic that has been around in the world of data and medical science for many years. The study conducted in this paper makes comparison of the different algorithms that have been used in pattern analysis and prediction of heart diseases. Among the algorithms that have been used in the past included a combination of machine learning and data mining concepts that essentially are derived from statistical analysis and relevant approaches. There are a lot of factors that can be considered when attempting to analytically predict instances of heart diseases, such as age, gender, resting blood pressure etc. Eight such factors have been taken into consideration for carrying out this qualitative comparison. As this study uses a particular data set for extracting results from, the output may vary when implemented over different data sets. The research includes comparisons of Naive Bayes, Decision Tree, Random Forest and Logistic Regression. After multiple implementations, the accuracy in training and testing are obtained and listed down. The observations from implementation of these algorithms over the same dataset indicates that Random Forest and Decision Tree have the highest accuracy in prediction of heart disease based on the dataset that we have provided. Similarly, Naive Bayes has the least accurate results for this scenario under the given contexts.[...] Read more.
