Pancreatic cancer is right now the fourth largest cause of cancer-related deaths. Early diagnosis is one good solution for pancreatic cancer patients and reduces the mortality rate. Accurate and earlier diagnosis of the pancreatic tumor is a demanding task due to several factors such as delayed diagnosis and absence of early warning symptoms. The conventional distributed machine learning techniques such as SVM and logistic regression were not efficient to minimize the error rate and improve the classification of pancreatic cancer with higher accuracy. Therefore, a novel technique called Distributed Hybrid Elitism gene Quadratic discriminant Reinforced Learning Classifier System (DHEGQDRLCS) is developed in this paper. First, the number of data samples is collected from the repository dataset. This repository contains all the necessary files for the identification of prognostic biomarkers for pancreatic cancer. After the data collection, the separation of training and testing samples is performed for the accurate classification of pancreatic cancer samples. Then the training samples are considered and applied to Distributed Hybrid Elitism gene Quadratic discriminant Reinforced Learning Classifier System. The proposed hybrid classifier system uses the Kernel Quadratic Discriminant Function to analyze the training samples. After that, the Elitism gradient gene optimization is applied for classifying the samples into multiple classes such as non-cancerous pancreas, benign hepatobiliary disease i.e., pancreatic cancer, and Pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma. Then the Reinforced Learning technique is applied to minimize the loss function based on target classification results and predicted classification results. Finally, the hybridized approach improves pancreatic cancer diagnosing accuracy. Experimental evaluation is carried out with pancreatic cancer dataset with Hadoop distributed system and different quantitative metrics such as Accuracy, balanced accuracy, F1-score, precision, recall, specificity, TN, TP, FN, FP, ROC_AUC, PRC_AUC, and PRC_APS. The performance analysis results indicate that the DHEGQDRLCS provides better diagnosing accuracy when compared to existing methods.
