Paper Abstract

An attempt is made to find a new way for better diagnosis of hepatisis through application of artificial neural network theory. Learning from a given sample set, the neural network is used to establish a nonlinear mapping between various factors, such as symptoms, signs, and laboratorial experiments, and diagnosis of hepatisis. It is proved that the used network and values of weight after learning are available to the identification of equivalent class of a new pattern of hepatisis. In this paper, the knowledge learning and learning algorithms used in diagnosis are mainly discussed, an optimal generalization algorithm based on the error decrease algorithm and used to train multilayer feedforward is presented; meanwhile, the application results and their effectiveness are introduced.
