This paper compares the fuzzy kernel k-medoids using radial basis function (RBF) and polynomial kernel function in hepatitis classification. These two kernel functions were chosen due to their popularity in any kernel-based machine learning method for solving the classification task. The hepatitis dataset then used to evaluate the performance of both methods that were expected to provide an accurate diagnosis in patients to obtain treatment at an early phase. The data were obtained from two hospitals in Indonesia, consisting of 89 hepatitis-B and 31 hepatitis-C samples. The data were analyzed using several cases of k-fold cross-validation, and the performances were compared according to their accuracy, sensitivity, precision, F1-Score, and running time. From the experiments, it was concluded that fuzzy kernel k-medoids using RBF kernel function is better compared to polynomial kernel function with the 6% increment of accuracy, 13% enhancement of sensitivity, and 5% improvement in F1-Score. On the other side, the precision of fuzzy kernel k-medoids using polynomial kernel function is 2% higher than using the RBF kernel function. According to the results, the use of RBF or polynomial kernel function in fuzzy kernel medoids can be considered according to the primary goal of the classification.
