Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a permanent developmental impairment that impairs a person's capacity to communicate and interact with the outside environment. Social contact and reciprocal communication are consistently impaired in people with ASD. To gain a higher degree of independence, people with ASD require varied amounts of psychosocial assistance, or they may require constant supervision and care at all times. A diagnosis of ASD at an earlier stage leads to more time devoted to individual rehabilitation. This paper proposes a bioinspired optimisation-based classifier, namely Reliable Ant Colony Optimization based Relevant Vector Machine (RACO-RVM), to detect ASD precisely. RACO-RVM performs classification via its heuristic function and pattern evolution. Pheromone update and pattern selection play a vital role in RACO-RVM predicting ASD more accurately. RACO-RVM is evaluated using the benchmark metrics "accuracy" and "F-Measure" on three ASD screening datasets. RACO-RVM is superior in its ability to accurately detect ASD, with an 87.184% averagely compared to other classifiers.
