Cancer Classification & Prediction Is Vitally Important for Cancer Diagnosis. DNA Microarray Technology Has Provided Genetic Data That Has Facilitated Scientists Perform Cancer Research. Traditional Methods of Classification Have Certain Limitations E.G. Traditionally A Proposed DSS Uses A Single Classifier at A Time for Classification or Prediction Purposes. To Increase Classification Accuracy, Reject Option Classifiers Has Been Proposed in Machine Learning Literature. In A Reject Option Classifier, A Rejection Region Is Defined and The Samples Fall in That Region Are Not Classified by The Classifier. The Unclassifiable Samples Are Rejected by Classifier in Order to Improve Classifier’s Accuracy. However, These Rejections Affect the Prediction Rate of The Classifier as Well. To Overcome the Problem of Low Prediction Rates by Increased Rejection of Samples by A Single Classifier, the “Delegating Classifiers” Provide Better Accuracy at Less Rejection Rate. Different Classifiers Such as Support Vector Machine (SVM), Linear Discriminant Analysis (LDA), K Nearest Neighbor (KNN) Etc. Have Been Proposed. Moreover, Traditionally, Same Learner Is Used As “Delegated” And “Delegating” Classifier. This Research Has Investigated the Effects of Using Different Machine Learning Classifiers in Both of The Delegated and Delegating Classifiers, And the Results Obtained Showed That Proposed Method Gives High Accuracy and Increases the Prediction Rate.
