Bottom Line: IAGA employs a new scaling technique (called sigma scaling) to avoid premature convergence and applies adaptive crossover and mutation techniques with masking concepts to enhance population diversity.The classification results unfold that promising classification accuracy of 94% is obtained with an optimal feature subset using IAGA.Also, the classification results are compared with those of other Feature Reduction techniques to substantiate its exhaustive search towards the global optimum.

ABSTRACT
A novel clinical decision support system is proposed in this paper for evaluating the fetal well-being from the cardiotocogram (CTG) dataset through an Improved Adaptive Genetic Algorithm (IAGA) and Extreme Learning Machine (ELM). IAGA employs a new scaling technique (called sigma scaling) to avoid premature convergence and applies adaptive crossover and mutation techniques with masking concepts to enhance population diversity. Also, this search algorithm utilizes three different fitness functions (two single objective fitness functions and multi-objective fitness function) to assess its performance. The classification results unfold that promising classification accuracy of 94% is obtained with an optimal feature subset using IAGA. Also, the classification results are compared with those of other Feature Reduction techniques to substantiate its exhaustive search towards the global optimum. Besides, five other benchmark datasets are used to gauge the strength of the proposed IAGA algorithm.

Mentions: Figures 4 and 5 show the comparative view of the classification accuracies and number of selection features using all the FR/FS methods for the CTG dataset. The inference from these Figures reveals that, among all the FR/FS methods, the overall (best) classification accuracy is yielded through IAGA-M1 for 6 features.
