Abstract: One of the most dreadful disease is breast cancer and it has a potential cause for death in women. Every year, death rate increases drastically due to breast cancer. An effective way to classify data is through classification or data mining. This becomes very handy, especially in the medical field where diagnosis and analysis are done through these techniques. Wisconsin Breast cancer dataset is used to perform a comparison between SVM, Logistic Regression, Naïve Bayes and Random Forest. Evaluating the correctness in classifying data based on accuracy and time consumption is used to determine the efficiency of the algorithms, which is the main objective. Based on the result of performed experiments, the Random Forest algorithm shows the highest accuracy (99.76%) with the least error rate. ANACONDA Data Science Platform is used to execute all the experiments in a simulated environment.
Keywords: Accuracy, Algorithm, Breast Cancer.
