One of the most common diseases in the world is the chronic diabetes. Diabetes has a direct impact on the lives of millions of people worldwide. Diabetes can be controlled and improved with early diagnosis, but the majority of patients continue to live with it. There is a dispirit need to a system to anticipate and select the people who are most likely to be diabetes in the future. Diagnosing the future diseased person without taking any blood or glucose screening tests, is the main goal of this study. This paper proposed a deep-learning model for diabetes disease prediction. The proposed model consists of three main phases, data pre-processing, feature selection and finally different classifiers. Initially, during the data pre-processing stage, missing values are handled, and data normalization is applied to the data. Then, three techniques are used to select the most important features which are mutual information, chi-squared and Pearson correlation. After that, multiple machine learning classifiers are used. Four experiments are then conducted to test our models. Additionally, the effectiveness of the proposed model is evaluated against that of other well-known machine learning techniques. The accuracy, AUC, sensitivity, and F-measure of the linear regression classifier are higher than those of the other methods, according to experimental data, which show that it performs better. The suggested model worked better than traditional methods and had a high accuracy rate for predicting diabetic disease.
