A Preliminary Study on Transductive Extreme Learning Machines
Transductive learning is the problem of designing learning machines that succesfully generalize only on a given set of input patterns. In this paper we begin the study towards the extension of Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) theory to the transductive setting, focusing on the binary classification case. To this end, we analyze previous work on Transductive Support Vector Machines (TSVM) learning, and introduce the Transductive ELM (TELM) model. Contrary to TSVM, we show that the optimization of TELM results in a purely combinatorial search over the unknown labels. Some preliminary results on an artifical dataset show substained improvements with respect to a standard ELM model.
