Despite nice advances in public future health around the world, insect vector-borne infectious ailments stay a number one explanation for morbidity and mortality. ailments which are transmitted via arthropods resembling mosquitoes, sand flies, fleas, and ticks impact hundreds and hundreds of hundreds of thousands of individuals and account for almost 3 million deaths around the world. long ago there has been little or no desire of controlling the epidemics as a result of those ailments, yet glossy developments in technology and expertise are offering various ways that those illnesses might be dealt with. essentially, the method of transmission of an infectious ailment is a nonlinear (not inevitably linear) dynamic procedure that are understood in simple terms by way of effectively quantifying the very important parameters that govern those dynamics.

True positive (TP): when the prediction of the classifier matches with the actual diagnosis as positive. 4. True negative (TN): when the prediction of the classifier matches with the actual diagnosis as negative. Based on the above situations the performance of the classifiers can be compared using the following standard measures: (a) Sensitivity: the proportion of the people who are predicted as positive of all the people who are actually positive TP/(TP + FN). (b) Specificity: the proportion of the people who are predicted as negative of all the people who are actually negative TN/(TN + FP).

The RNIADT identified the attributes fever duration, pulse, WBC, and arthralgia as most influential features classified instances with a classification accuracy of 100%. The difference in the percentage accuracy when compared with other classifiers is shown in Fig. 16. The RNIADT outperformed Naive Bayes, RBFNetworks, and logistic regression classifiers and the difference in accuracies were found to be greater than 7%. The discretization method when applied on the dengue data set generated an RNIADT decision tree that outperformed Bayes Network, Naive Bayes, and RBF Network classifiers (see Fig.
