A Two-Stage Modeling Approach For Breast Cancer Survivability Prediction

Research Area:  Machine Learning


This paper proposes a two-stage data analytic framework, where Stage I classifies the survival and deceased statuses and Stage II predicts the number of survival months for deceased females with cancer. Since medical data are not entirely clean nor prepared for model development, we aim to show that data preparation can strengthen a simple Generalized Linear Model (GLM)1 to predict as accurate as the complex models like Extreme Gradient Boosting (XGB)2 and Multilayer Perceptron based on Artificial Neural Networks (MLP-ANNs)3 in both stages.
