Convolutional neural networks (CNN) have become a popular choice for image segmentation and classification. Internal body images are obscure in nature with involvement of noise, luminance variation, rotation and blur. Thus optimal choice of features for machine learning model to classify bleeding is still an open problem. CNN is efficient for attribute selection and ensemble learning makes a generalized robust system. Capsule endoscopy is a new technology which enables a gastroenterologist to visualize the entire digestive tract including small bowel to diagnose bleeding, ulcer and polyp. This paper presents a supervised learning ensemble to detect the bleeding in the images of Wireless Capsule Endoscopy. It accurately finds out the best possible combination of attributes required to classify bleeding symptoms in endoscopy images. A careful setting for CNN layer options and optimizer for back propagation after reducing the color palette using minimum variance quantization has shown promising results. Results of testing on public and real dataset has been analyzed. Proposed ensemble is able to achieve 0.95 on the public endoscopy dataset and 0.93 accuracy on the real video dataset. A detailed data analysis has also been incorporated in the study including RGB pixel intensities, distributions of binary classes and various class ratios for training.
