Dengue fever, mainly found in the tropical and subtropical regions, is carried by mosquitoes. With the help of greenhouse effect, places considered to be a Dengue safe-zone are becoming more and more dangerous. Dengue fever shows similar aspects to MERS, which caused heavy casualties in South Korea; Dengue virus does not have clear treatments nor vaccines like MERS. Development of Dengue vaccine is actively investigated lately. However, it is not easy to succeed; the fact that Dengue’s 4 serotypes have different properties and that repeated infections worsen the symptoms. This research aims to analyze the 4 serotypes (DENV1, DENV2, DENV3, DENV4) using SVM and ANN algorithms to investigate the constraints in the development of Dengue’s vaccines and treatments.
