#### Abstract

Stroke has always been a significant threat to human health. Predicting the occurrence of stroke plays a very important role in reducing the prevalence and lethality of stroke. With the development of machine learning techniques, using machine learning techniques to assist in medical decision-making has become a new area of research. This paper used the random forest algorithm and the multilayer perceptron algorithm to predict the probability of a patient suffering from stroke based on his physiological indicators and compared the performance of the two models. By analyzing the importance of features in the Random Forest model, the health factors more correlated with the probability of stroke were obtained. The random forest algorithm was found to be a more suitable optimization model for predicting the probability of stroke. Among the common health factors, age, average blood glucose level, and body mass index had a greater effect on stroke probability.
