High-Performance Extreme Learning Machines: A Complete Toolbox for Big Data Applications

HP-ELM toolbox trains ELMs fast on any hardware, with GPU acceleration for extremely large models.

This paper presents a complete approach to a successful utilization of a high-performance extreme learning machines (ELMs) Toolbox for Big Data. It summarizes recent advantages in algorithmic performance; gives a fresh view on the ELM solution in relation to the traditional linear algebraic performance; and reaps the latest software and hardware performance achievements. The results are applicable to a wide range of machine learning problems and thus provide a solid ground for tackling numerous Big Data challenges. The included toolbox is targeted at enabling the full potential of ELMs to the widest range of users.

Edison's First Lightbulb

Thomas Edison did not invent the first lightbulb, nor even the first incandescent lightbulb. He invented an incandescent lightbulb which was reliable, long-lasting, and manufacturable. Edison's first lightbulb is not viewable in any museum, however. It was broken up in the laboratory in order to find out what had made it work so well.
