This study discusses the comparison of the Dempster-Shafer method and Bayes' theorem in the process of early detection of inflammatory bowel disease. Inflammatory bowel disease, better known as intestinal inflammation, attacks the digestive tract in the form of irritation, chronic inflammation, and injuries to the digestive tract. Early signs of inflammatory bowel disease include excess abdominal pain, blood when passing stools, acute diarrhea, weight loss, and fatigue. The Dempster-Shafer method is a method that produces an accurate diagnosis of uncertainty caused by adding or reducing information about the symptoms of a disease. Meanwhile, Bayes' theorem explains the probability of an event based on the factors that may be related to the event. This study aims to measure the accuracy of disease detection using the Dempster-Shafer method compared to the probability of occurrence of the disease using Bayes' theorem. The results of calculating the level of accuracy show that the Bayes Theorem method is better at predicting inflammatory bowel disease with a probability of occurrence of disease in the tested data of 75.9%.
