Abstract: The development of computer technologies and increased expenditure of healthcare are the reasons for innovation of automated disease inference system. Automated disease inference system will give the disease information which a person is facing on the basis of health related questions. Using this system health seeker will get immediate response as compared to the existing system. Diseases and symptoms are collected and used as the Question Answer pairs. In this paper, a survey of different techniques for automatic disease diagnosis is done. In shallow learning methods, which make use of patient details from hospital records with structured fields, they can focus on only a single or a few diseases. The automated scheme can deals with wide range of diseases which posses scalability and generalizability.
