In the paper the deep hybrid system of computational intelligence with architecture adaptation for medical fuzzy diagnostics is proposed. This system allows to increase a quality of medical information processing under the condition of overlapping classes due to special adaptive architecture and training algorithms. The deep hybrid system under consideration can tune its architecture in situation when number of features and diagnoses can be variable. The special algorithms for its training are developed and optimized for situation of different system architectures without retraining of synaptic weights that have been tuned at previous steps. The proposed system was used for processing of three medical data sets (dermatology dataset, Pima Indians diabetes dataset and Parkinson disease dataset) under the condition of fixed number of features and diagnoses and in situation of its increasing. A number of conducted experiments have shown high quality of medical diagnostic process and confirmed the efficiency of the deep hybrid system of computational intelligence with architecture adaptation for medical fuzzy diagnostics.
