K-centroid convergence clustering identification in one-label per type for disease prediction

Minh Long Hoang, Nicola Delmonte


Disease prediction is a high demand field which requires significant support from machine learning (ML) to enhance the result efficiency. The research works on application of K-means clustering supervised classification in disease prediction where each class only has one labeled data. The K-centroid convergence clustering identification (KC3I) system is based on semi-K-means clustering but only requires single labeled data per class for the training process with the training dataset to update the centroid. The KC3I model also includes a dictionary box to index all the input centroids before and after the updating process. Each centroid matches with a corresponding label inside this box. After the training process, each time the input features arrive, the trained centroid will put them to its cluster depending on the Euclidean distance, then convert them into the specific class name, which is coherent to that centroid index. Two validation stages were carried out and accomplished the expectation in terms of precision, recall, F1-score, and absolute accuracy. The last part demonstrates the possibility of feature reduction by selecting the most crucial feature with the extra tree classifier method. Total data are fed into the KC3I system with the most important features and remain the same accuracy.
