Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) is a promising learning scheme for nonlinear classification and regression problems and has shown its effectiveness in the machine learning literature. ELM represents a class of generalized single hidden layer feed-forward networks (SLFNs) whose hidden layer parameters are assigned randomly resulting in an extremely fast(More)
In this article, a stochastic gradient based online learning algorithm for Extreme Learning Machines (ELM) is developed (SG-ELM). A stability criterion based on Lyapunov approach is used to prove both asymptotic stability of estimation error and stability in the estimated parameters suitable for identification of nonlinear dynamic systems.

Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) is an emerging learning paradigm for nonlinear regression problems and has shown its effectiveness in the machine learning community. An important feature of ELM is that the learning speed is extremely fast thanks to its random projection preprocessing step. This feature is taken advantage of in designing an online parameter(More)
We propose and develop SG-ELM, a stable online learning algorithm based on stochastic gradients and Extreme Learning Machines (ELM). We propose SG-ELM particularly for systems that are required to be stable during learning; i.e., the estimated model parameters remain bounded during learning. We use a Lyapunov approach to prove both asymptotic stability of(More)
