The machine learning and health care combination are sharply related. Machine Learning can play a crucial role in predicting the presence or absence of kidney disease. An effective method for kidney disease prediction is discussed in this work. The proposed system consists of autoencoder combined with a multilayer perceptron for a classification problem. An autoencoder is an artificial neural network that trains a model to extracting useful features. We used kidney disease analysis as a case study for simulating the proposed system and its efficiency is evaluated against the current approaches. An autoencoder is able to integrate into an optimal representation which is then classified by the MLP network to derive the final output. The proposed system clearly gives a better result than the traditional ones. This learning method has a good effect on the classification of disease prediction and guidance for the diagnosis of disease in medical.

An effective method for kidney disease prediction is discussed in this paper. In this work, we proposed a framework for chronic kidney disease classification of data using autoencoders and MLP. Chronic kidney disease dataset is taken for training process of the model. This model is compared with several neural network approaches and other state-of art approaches in the literature. From the results it is evident that the proposed model outperforms other model with an accuracy of 96.475% which is quite excellent for the ideal classification model. Based on the experiments and observations it is concluded that the proposed framework for kidney disease prediction can be used as powerful tool for the disease diagnosis process. This model helps in predicting the chronic kidney disease of a patient with better which are important in the medical world. In the future, this system can be improved using DNN based techniques to enrich the input features.
