Abstract

The inclusion in workplaces of video display terminals has brought multiple benefits for the organization of work. Nevertheless, it also implies a series of risks for the health of the workers, since it can cause ocular and visual disorders, among others. In this research, a group of eye and vision-related problems associated with prolonged computer use (known as computer vision syndrome) are studied. The aim is to select the characteristics of the subject that are most relevant for the occurrence of this syndrome, and then, to develop a classification model for its prediction. The estimate of this problem is made by means of support vector machines for classification. This machine learning technique will be trained with the support of a genetic algorithm. This provides the training of the support vector machine with different patterns of parameters, improving its performance. The model performance is verified in terms of the area under the ROC curve, which leads to a model with high accuracy in the classification of the syndrome. Keywords Support vector machines  Genetic algorithms  Computer vision syndrome  Health personnel 1 Introduction personnel have become users of video display terminals (VDT).
