Nowadays Parkinson’s disease has been discovered that approximately 94% of people suffer from voice disorder problems. A neurodegenerative can identify PD patients through examination and multiple scanning tests. So, it usually takes more time to diagnose the disease at the early stage. Current work has identified that speech disorders can be a significant signal for Parkinson’s disease. Therefore, this work proposed a fusion model to identify the speech disorder at the starting stage of the disease. In this process, the author has tested a model with a different pattern of feature selection method as well as classification mode and created a system with the best pattern. For the creation of pattern, three types of feature selection methods namely Chi-square, genetic algorithm and Embedded random forest method and four classifier models such as KNN, Naïve Bayes, SVM, Decision tree and Random Forest have been utilized. To analyze the performance of the system speech public dataset from the UCI repository,the authors applied the combination of the Embedded random feature selection method and random forest classification algorithm provides 97.89% of accuracy. However, this outcome is better than the recent work. The SMOTE is utilized for the balancing of the dataset.
