Due to the significant efficiency and simple implementation, extreme learning machine (ELM) algorithms enjoy much attention in regression and classification applications recently. Many efforts have been paid to enhance the performance of ELM from both methodology (ELM training strategies) and structure (incremental or pruned ELMs) perspectives. In this paper, a local coupled extreme learning machine (LC-ELM) algorithm is presented. By assigning an address to each hidden node in the input space, LC-ELM introduces a decoupler framework to ELM in order to reduce the complexity of the weight searching space. The activated degree of a hidden node is measured by the membership degree of the similarity between the associated address and the given input. Experimental results confirm that the proposed approach works effectively and generally outperforms the original ELM in both regression and classification applications.
