Diagnosis of cardiac disease requires being more accurate, precise, and reliable. The number of death cases due to cardiac attacks is increasing exponentially day by day. Thus, practical approaches for earlier diagnosis of cardiac or heart disease are done to achieve prompt management of the disease. Various supervised machine-learning techniques like K-Nearest Neighbour, Decision Tree, Logistic Regression, Naïve Bayes, and Support Vector Machine (SVM) model are used for predicting cardiac disease using a dataset that was collected from the repository of the University of California, Irvine (UCI). The results depict that Logistic Regression was better than all other supervised classifiers in terms of the performance metrics. The model is also less risky since the number of false negatives is low as compared to other models as per the confusion matrix of all the models. In addition, ensemble techniques can be approached for the accuracy improvement of the classifier. Jupyter notebook is the best tool, for the implementation of Python Programming having many types of libraries, header files, for accurate and precise work.
