Medical inference systems are a category of Artificial Intelligence (AI) application that supports the free practice of techno-scientific human knowledge for solving semi or ill-structured matters wheresoever there is not a special promise for defining the algorithm. The Medical inference systems have been characterised as intelligent employment which appropriates knowledge and inference levels to handle severe problems to necessitate significant human expertise for their clarifications.
A fuzzy inference system is a particular knowledge-based system, which is made of fuzzification, knowledge database, inference rules, and defuzzification parts, and uses fuzzy sets instead of the Boolean logic to hold applied data in the deduction mechanism. This system is utilised to explain decision-making problems, where there is no scientific and straightforward method. However, the problem solution can be studied alternatively, which is in regard to professionals in the form of If-Then rules. A fuzzy inference system can be adequately provided to the problem, which gives uncertainty emitting from fuzziness, ambiguity or subjectivity. In the 21st century, the attentions of FIS have been tremendously growing wherever scientific research issues such as diagnosing and predicting the different risks of the diseases [2, 3, 4, 5, 6]
, civil engineering applicabilities as an assistant because a pretty high safety level is needed in civil engineering compositions the uncertainty associated with the relationship of scientific estimations are very roughly and conservatively calculated handling traditional methods[7, 8, 9, 10], assessing the educational service qualities by embedded fuzzy sets[11, 12, 13, 14, 15] and in representing various aspects of indeterministic business positions [16, 17, 18, 19].
Recently, Efforts have been performed to develop the PSO performance, and also a few PSO modifications have been introduced. Much practice centred on parameters settings of the algorithm  and on combining various techniques into the PSO [21, 22, 23]. However, most of these developed PSOs manage the control parameters or hybrid operators outdoors regarding the varying states of evolution. Therefore, these actions have a lack of well-organised strategy of evolutionary state and besides seldom experience from an insufficiency in dealing with complex search spaces.
Consequently, we have investigated to propose an adaptive mechanism for updating the control parameters of PSO in real-time mode. In this way, the main contributions are including
1.Applying a robust evolutionary idea called 1+1EA with an adaptive mutation step size for optimizing and tuning the control paraMeters of PSO.
2.Using the ANFIS because of its benefits such as simple sense, immense flexibility, the capacity to endure erroneous data properly, creating complex non- linear functions, to act on the basis of skilful knowledge, the ability to comply with traditional controlling systems.
3. Applying the proposed adaptive PSO to develop the performance of diagnosis by tuning the hyper-parameters of ANFIS like the number and kind of fuzzy membership functions and heightening the fuzzy rules.
The main goal of this article is to address the important benefits and shortcomings of the current approaches and theories for improving and modelling fuzzy inference systems compared with the proposed adaptive neuro particle swarm optimization performance for diagnosing the liver disorders based on the dataset. Concerning accomplishing like plans, a comprehensive study of the relevant fuzzy inference system technique is utilized.
The rest of this article is arranged as views. The details of the dataset used can be seen in Section 2. Section 3 illustrates the fuzzy inference systems in details. Besides, the technical specifications of the particle swarm optimization method and its diversity are studied in Section 4, and also section 6 shows the experimental implications. Conclusively, conclusions are sketched in Section 5.
2 Liver Disorders and Data-Set
The liver is one of the most important body glands that detoxification of prescriptions, removal of natural things emerging from the demolition and rehabilitation of RBCs in the form of bile, composition of blood clotting parts, area of sugar as glycogen. Furthermore, the ordinance of sugar and fat metabolism are some of the fundamental functions of this body organ. We must not underestimate its function in fat metabolism and defence before microbus and toxins coming from foodstuff . In the last decade, the death damage following different liver disorders has been dramatically growing. On-time examination of this disease can be useful in the inhibition of its effects, its control and treatment. Browse contemplates expert’s mentality as one of the most critical issues in diagnosing disease because human-being is subject to error, and there is a possible error in disease diagnosis. One of the notable informatics medical procedures is to use expert systems to diagnose the disease concerning a group of symptoms. These schemes can be based on artificial intelligence (AI) and assist experts to diagnose the diseases and more adequately satisfy them by acknowledging laboratory examinations. They also decrease cost, save the time of experts and their incorrect judgment.
The dataset employed in this paper, which is used for enhancing the ability of liver disorders investigation according to their qualities, gathered by Richards forsyth and presented to the UCI in 1995. The samples number in this collection are 345, and each sample consists of 7 attributes. In this dataset the first five fields are reported to variable substances of a male blood test, the 6th field is the quantity of
alcohol drinking, and lastly, the 7th field is using for restricting the healthy or ill individual. Characteristic information can be seen in the following:
1.Mcv: means corpuscular volume Alkphos
3.Sgpt: alamine aminotransferase
4.Sgot: aspartate aminotransferase
5.Gammagt: gamma-glut amyl Tranpeptidase
6.Drinks: number of half-pint equivalents of alcoholic beverages Drunk per day
7.Selector: field used to split data into two sets.
The dataset is continuous, and there is no missing or destroyed data.
3 Fuzzy Inference Systems (FIS)
Initially, Zadeh  introduced the main theory of fuzzy logic as an approach for interpreting human knowledge that is not precise and well-defined. The process of fuzzification interface converts the crisp information into fuzzy linguistic values by various kinds of membership functions. The fuzzification can be regularly required in a fuzzy expert system considering the input values from surviving detectors are always deterministic numerical values. The inference generator demands fuzzy input and rules, and then it will produce fuzzy productions. Considerably, the fuzzy rule base should be in the figure of “IF-THEN” rules, including linguistic variables. The last part of a fuzzy expert system can be defuzzification which has the responsibility of performing crisp yield operations. The landscape of the fuzzy inference system can be represented in Figure 1.
In the last three decades, Fuzzy rule-based systems is a subsidiary of Artificial intelligence fitted of interpreting complicated medical data. Their potential to employ significant relationship within a data set has been used in the diagnosis, treatment and predicting consequence in various clinical outlines. A survey of different artificial intelligence methods is exhibited in this part, along with the study of critical clinical applications of expert systems. The ability of artificial intelligence systems and has been explored in almost every field of medicine. Artificial neural network and knowledge based systems were the most regularly accepted analytical tool while additional AI systems such as evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence and hybrid systems have been handled in various clinical environments. It can be concluded that AI and expert systems have a high potential to be employed in almost all fields of medicine. Table1 shows the application of practical AI techniques such as fuzzy sets, neural networks, evolutionary algorithms, swarm intelligence for diagnosing a wide set of diseases. Table 1 shows a short review of different kinds methods for diagnosing the Liver disorders in the last two decades.

4 Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS)
An adaptive neuro-fuzzy inference system (ANFIS) can be a class of artificial neural network (ANN) that is worked in regard to Takagi–Sugeno fuzzy inference system. The system was developed at the beginning of the 1990s . Since it combines both ANN and fuzzy logic principles, it holds the potential to catch the advantages of both in a unique framework. Its fuzzy inference system (FIS) corresponds to a collection of fuzzy rules (IF–THEN) which have learning inclination to approximate nonlinear functions. Consequently, ANFIS is supposed to be a general estimator. For practising the ANFIS more efficiently and optimally, one can handle the most useful parameters taken by genetic algorithm. It is conceivable to distinguish two parts in the network structure, namely basis and consequence parts. In more details, the architecture is comprised of five layers. The first layer receives the input values and determines the membership functions referring to them. It is generally called fuzzification layer. The membership degrees of each function are calculated by applying the premise parameter set, namely a,b,c. The second layer is responsible for making the firing strengths for the rules. Due to its responsibility, the second layer is expressed as "rule layer". The role of the third layer is to normalize the measured firing strengths by diving each value for the total firing strength. The fourth layer practices as input the normalized values and the result parameter set p,q,r. The values yielded by this layer are the defuzzificated ones, and also those values are transferred to the last layer to replace the final output . Figure 2 shows a deep landscape of ANFIS architecture. Table 1 shows the previous applied methods for diagnosing the liver disorders.
5 Canonical Particle Swarm Optimization
Particle swarm optimisation (PSO) was proposed by Kennedy and Eberhart , driven by the operation of social animals relationships in groups, such as bird and fish schooling or ant colonies. This metaheuristic idea accompanies in the interaction among members to share their achieved knowledge. PSO has been performed in various regions in optimisation and mixture with other existing algorithms. This method obtains the exploration of the optimal solution through particles, whose trajectories are mitigated by a stochastic and a deterministic component. Each solution called particle is influenced by its ‘best’ gave position and the population ‘best’ situation, but commands to walking randomly. A particle is distinguished by its status vector,, and its velocity vector,. Every iteration, each particle coordinates its situation based on the new velocity as:
where and indicate the best particle location and best group situation and the parameters and are respectively inertia weight, two positive constants and two random parameters within [0, 1]. In the baseline PSO, is chosen as a unit, but an enhancement of the PSO is observed in its inertial implementation using . Regularly, maximum and minimum velocity values are also described, and originally, the particles are assigned randomly to boost the search in all tolerable locations. Despite all the advantages of PSO like fast convergence and powerful in global search, its control parameters need to be tuned during the global search. There are plenty of proposed ideas to adjust the control parameters which have been called adaptive PSO [53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58]
. Moreover, various meta-heuristic methods are combined with PSO to create a successful hybrid search technique[59, 60, 61]. One of the benefits of PSO over other derivative-free approaches is the diminished the number of parameters to adjust and restrictions acceptance.
6 Adaptive Neural PSO and FIS
6.1 Adaptive 1+1EA
Shortly after introducing the genuine random search as a stochastic optimization algorithm, it was identified those adaptive algorithms where the sampling distribution is adapted (as encountered to pure random search) throughout the course of the optimization can be essential for the efficient optimization process. One of the most used adaptive search techniques adjusts the step-size utilizing the subsequent idea: the step-size is raised after a successful step (enhancing exploration) and decreased after a failure(developing exploitation) to keep a success probability of roughly, grow the step-size if the success probability is more extensive than and decreases it oppositely.The original 1+1EA with adaptive mutation step size can be seen in the Algorithm 1 .
In the second version of the adaptive 1+1EA (Algorithm variant 1), it can be seen that we keep the mutation step size if there is not any improvement after applying mutation.
We employ both version of adaptive 1+1EA for tuning the control parameters of PSO including , and by 100 generations. The mutation probability is where is the length of decision variables.
6.2 Adaptive Neuro PSO plus FIS
In this article, we propose a new adaptive particle swarm optimization which is combined with an inference system for diagnosing liver disorders. As the original PSO has some drawbacks like premature convergence and disables to have a robust global search, we apply a fast and effective evolutionary algorithm that is equipped by an adaptive mechanism called 1+1EA (with 1/5). This method is run every other ten iterations of PSO run to adjust the control parameters. In the next layer of the hybrid method, PSO which is a population-based method that can be an effective swarm intelligence method is employed to tune the features of the inference system like the number of fuzzy rules, the number of fuzzy membership function in each input variable and also the type of fuzzy membership functions (triangle, gaussian and trapezoidal) and the range of each membership. In predominating, experts in a particular field is able to make the rules and membership function because the definition of these is generally affected by individual decisions. While fuzzy rules indicate approximately straightforward to obtain by them, the MFs imply doubting to complete. Besides, attuning of MFs can be a time-consuming process. These characters perform evolutionary algorithms such as Genetic Algorithms (GAs), particle swarm optimization (PSO), better choices for searching these spaces 
. Finally, a multi-layer feed-forward neural network is used to create the inference system based on the knowledge-based dataset.
7 Experimental outcomes
The original ANFIS and some hybrids of optimization methods performances are assessed by the dataset of liver disorders. The given evaluation criteria can be the mean square error (MSE) and MSE root (RMSE) of the targets and predicted outputs. Figure 4
explains the MSE of both trained and tested data of the original ANFIS performance for one run as a tangible example. The error distribution can be in regard to a normal distribution with an approximately wide variance which shows that the applied ANFIS need to be modified. The average RMSE of ANFIS train and test are specified atand . Meanwhile, two different optimization methods of ANFIS are compared. The results show that the hybrid optimization method performance is better than the back-propagation approach.
Table 2 shows the comparison of the achieved results of both ANFIS optimization method. Furthermore, Table 3 represents the RMSE of applied hybrid methods with original ANFIS. We can see that the best performances are related to adaptive PSO and original PSO with ANFIS. The average RMSE of ANPSO-ANFIS training and testing are at and . These results show an acceptable development for the newly proposed method.
In the meantime, Figure 5 shows how adaptive PSO is able to tune the different parameters of the used inference system. The overall process of hybrid adaptive PSO and other applied methods can be shown in Figure 5. In spite of an initial fast convergence of PSO-ANFIS, the ANPSO-ANFIS can overcome all methods considerably.
In this article, a hybrid adaptive neural PSO is proposed and implemented in Matlab’s Simulink because of recognising the liver disorders. According to the practical results, the performance of the proposed method is increased by compared with the original ANFIS and other hybrid optimization techniques based on the dataset can be performed. The expansion of the important characteristics and fuzzy rules are taken by applying the statistical analysis. The significance of recognising meaningful and appropriate fuzzy rules without the support of the professionals exhibits the possibility of knowledge discovery. The main advantages of the FIS as a knowledge acquisition tool are the following: firstly, the adaptive number of rules are evaluated. Secondly, the obtained rules can be efficiently represented. These results propose encouraging research areas employing adaptive PSO and fuzzy inference system in different classification problems. The hybrid proposed system is able to overcome beforehand considered methods in terms of both precision and portability.
