Automatic ECG arrhythmias classification scheme based on the conjoint use of the multi‐layer perceptron neural network and a new improved metaheuristic approach

Abstract

The authors have proposed a new automatic classification scheme based on the conjoint use of the multi-layer perceptron (MLP) neural network and an enhanced particle swarm optimisation (EPSO) algorithm for its training. In this work, six predominant categories of heartbeats from MIT-BIH database are considered, which are: normal, premature ventricular contraction, atrial premature contraction, right bundle branch block, left bundle branch block and paced beats. First, the authors have applied the standard particle swarm optimisation (PSO) algorithm to select the network structure for each features vector. Then, the relevant electrocardiogram (ECG) features to the studied arrhythmias were chosen, which suited to the optimised training performance of the classifier. The recognition performance of the proposed EPSO-MLP classification system is evaluated considering two different versions of the EPSO algorithm. In the first version (EPSOw), the inertia weight factor of the PSO algorithm is proposed to be a variable with iterations. However, two PSO parameters are taken to be variables in the second version of the improved learning algorithm (EPSOwc). The obtained experimental results prove the enhancement of the convergence ability of the MLP neural network and confirm the superiority of the proposed EPSO-MLP classification scheme on comparison with the other last published classification systems.
