Pneumonia is one of the most common respiratory disorders, it is sometimes very dangerous and life threatening. Early detection of such disorders is very important for better and faster treatment. X-ray images are one of the major methods of detecting pneumonia, therefore, an efficient image detection and classification technique is required to accurately classify X-ray images. We suggest a convolutional neural networks-based method to efficiently classify X-ray. The suggested method is implemented by the use of Keras, a Tens or Flow based Python library. ReLu and sigmoid are used as activation functions and Adam is used as the optimizer function. The data was trained with an accuracy of about 94% and testing accuracy of 92%. Keywords - Pneumonia, Neural Networks, Deep Learning, Keras, Classification, Image Augmentation.
