Evolutionary hypernetwork models for aptamer-based cardiovascular disease diagnosis
We present a biology-inspired probabilistic graphical model, called the hypernetwork model, and its application to medical diagnosis of disease. The hypernetwork models are a way of simulated DNA computing. They have a set of hyperedges representing a subset of features in the training data. These characteristics allow the hypernetwork models to work similarly to associative memories and make their learning results more understandable. This comprehensibility is one of main advantages of the models over other machine learning algorithms such as support vector machines and artificial neural networks which are used in a wide range of applications but are not easy to understand their learning results. Since medical applications require both competitive performance and understandability of results, the hypernetwork models are suitable for this kind of applications. However, ordinary hypernetwork models have limitations that hyperedges cannot be changed after they are sampled once. To impro...
