The growth of swarm intelligence approaches and machine learning models in the field of medical image processing is extravagant, and the applicability of these approaches for various types of cancer classification has as well grown in the recent years. Considering the growth of these machine learning models, in this work attempt is taken to develop an optimized deep learning neural network classifier for classifying the nodule tissues in the lung cancer images which is an important application in biomedical area. The optimized model developed is the hybrid version of adaptive multi-swarm particle swarm optimizer with the new improved firefly algorithm resulting in better exploration and exploitation mechanism to determine near-optimal solutions. Multi-swarm particle swarm optimizer (MSPSO) possesses strong exploration capability due to its regrouping schedule nature, and the improved firefly algorithm (ImFFA) possesses better exploitation mechanism due to its inherit attractiveness and intensity feature. At this juncture, the new adaptive MSPSO–ImFFA is applied to the deep learning neural classifier to overcome the local and global minima occurrences and premature convergence by tuning its weight values. As a result, in this work the new adaptive MSPSO–ImFFA-based deep learning neural network classifier is employed to classify the lung cancer tissues of the considered lung computed tomography images. Results obtained prove the effectiveness of the deep learning classifier for the considered lung image sample datasets in comparison with the other methods compared from the previous literature works.
