Abstract: Extreme learning machine (ELM) is a novel learning algorithm where the training is restricted to the output weights to achieve a fast learning speed. However, ELM tends to require more neurons in the hidden layer and sometimes leads to ill-condition problem due to random selection of input weights and hidden biases. To address these problems, we propose a multi hidden layer extreme learning machine optimised with batch intrinsic plasticity (BIP) scheme. The proposed algorithm has a deep structure and thus learns features more efficiently. The combination of BIP scheme helps to achieve better generalisation ability. Comparisons with some state-of-the-art ELM algorithms on both regression and classification problems have verified the performance and effectiveness of our proposed algorithm.

Keywords: neural network; extreme learning machine; ELM; batch intrinsic plasticity; BIP; multi hidden layers.
