COVID-19, Chest X-Ray, K-NN, SVM, Random Forest


The COVID-19 virus pandemic is still ongoing in almost all countries in the world. The spread of this virus is very fast because the transmission process is through air contaminated with viruses from droplets of COVID-19 patients. RT-PCR usually checks patients suspected of being infected with the COVID-19 virus. In addition to this method, through several previous research, the use of Chest X-Ray images can detect the presence of this virus. Detection of COVID-19 using Chest X-Ray images can use deep learning techniques, but the training process takes long. Therefore, this research uses machine learning techniques hoping that the accuracy results are not too different from deep learning, but the training time is fast. We evaluated three supervised learning methods, namely SVM, K-NN, and Random Forest, to detect this COVID-19 disease. The experimental results show that the accuracy of the SVM method using a polynomial kernel can reach 90% accuracy, and the training speed is only 462 ms. Through these results, machine learning techniques can compensate for the results of the deep learning technique in terms of accuracy, and the training process is faster than the deep learning technique.
