Selection of wart treatment method using machine learning is being a concern to researchers. Machine learning is expected to select the treatment of warts such as cryotherapy and immunotherapy to patients appropriately. In this study, the data used were cryotherapy and immunotherapy datasets. This study aims to improve the accuracy of wart treatment selection with machine learning. Previously, there are several algorithms have been proposed which were able to provide good accuracy in this case. However, the existing results still need improvement to achieve better level of accuracy so that treatment selection can satisfy the patients. The purpose of this study is to increase the accuracy by improving the performance of weak learner algorithm of ensemble machine learning. AdaBoost is used in this study as a strong learner and Random Forest (RF) is used as a weak learner. Furthermore, stratified 10-fold cross validation is used to evaluate the proposed algorithm. The experimental results show accuracy of 96.6% and 91.1% in cryotherapy and immunotherapy respectively.
