Graphical Model and Clustering-Regression based Methods for Causal Interactions: Breast Cancer Case Study


Suhilah Alkhalifah and Adel Aloraini, Qassim University, Saudi Arabia


The early detection of Breast Cancer, the deadly disease that mostly affects women is extremely complex because it requires various features of the cell type. Therefore, the efficient approach to diagnosing Breast Cancer at the early stage was to apply artificial intelligence where machines are simulated with intelligence and programmed to think and act like a human. This allows machines to passively learn and find a pattern, which can be used later to detect any new changes that may occur. In general, machine learning is quite useful particularly in the medical field, which depends on complex genomic measurements such as microarray technique and would increase the accuracy and precision of results. With this technology, doctors can easily diagnose patients with cancer quickly and apply the proper treatment in a timely manner. Therefore, the goal of this paper is to address and propose a robust Breast Cancer diagnostic system using complex genomic analysis via microarray technology. The system will combine two machine learning methods, K-means cluster, and linear regression.
