Currently, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) disease is considered fatal since it affects the central nervous system with no cure or clear treatments. This disease affects the spinal cord, more specifically, the lower motor neurons (LMNs) and the upper motor neurons (UMNs) inside the brain along with their networks. Various solutions have been developed to predict ALS. Some of these solutions were implemented using different deep-learning methods (DLMs). Nevertheless, this disease is considered a tough task and a huge challenge. This article proposes a reliable model to predict ALS disease based on a deep-learning tool (DLT). The developed DLT is designed using a UNET architecture. The proposed approach is evaluated for different performance quantities on a dataset and provides promising results. An average obtained accuracy ranged between 82% and 87% with around 86% of the F-score. The obtained outcomes can open the door to applying DLMs to predict and identify ALS disease.
