Stochastic Configuration Networks Ensemble for Large-Scale Data Analytics

2 Jul 2017  ·  Dianhui Wang, Caihao Cui ·

This paper presents a fast decorrelated neuro-ensemble with heterogeneous features for large-scale data analytics, where stochastic configuration networks (SCNs) are employed as base learner models and the well-known negative correlation learning (NCL) strategy is adopted to evaluate the output weights. By feeding a large number of samples into the SCN base models, we obtain a huge sized linear equation system which is difficult to be solved by means of computing a pseudo-inverse used in the least squares method... Based on the group of heterogeneous features, the block Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel methods are employed to iteratively evaluate the output weights, and a convergence analysis is given with a demonstration on the uniqueness of these iterative solutions. Experiments with comparisons on two large-scale datasets are carried out, and the system robustness with respect to the regularizing factor used in NCL is given. Results indicate that the proposed ensemble learning techniques have good potential for resolving large-scale data modelling problems. read more
