Obesity Level Estimation based on Machine Learning Methods and Artificial Neural Networks
MetadataShow full item record
Obesity is a growing societal and public health problem starting from 1980 that needs more attention. For this reason, new studies are emerging day by day, including those looking for obesity in children, especially the impact factors, and how to predict the emergence of the situation under these factors. In this study, different classification methods were applied for the estimation of obesity levels. Based on the evaluation criteria, the results were compared for different machine learning methods. When the Cubic SVM method was applied by selecting the appropriate features specific to the problem, 97.8% accuracy was obtained.
