Abstract

In healthcare applications, deep learning is a highly valuable tool. It extracts features from raw data to save time and effort for health practitioners. A deep learning model is capable of learning and extracting the features from raw data by itself without any external intervention. On the other hand, shallow learning feature extraction techniques depend on user experience in selecting a powerful feature extraction algorithm. In this article, we proposed a multistage model that is based on the spectrogram of biosignal. The proposed model provides an appropriate representation of the input raw biosignal that boosts the accuracy of training and testing dataset. In the next stage, smaller datasets are augmented as larger data sets to enhance the accuracy of the classification for biosignal datasets. After that, the augmented dataset is represented in the TensorFlow that provides more services and functionalities, which give more flexibility. The proposed model was compared with different approaches. The results show that the proposed approach is better in terms of testing and training accuracy.
