Coupled Least Squares Support Vector Ensemble Machines
AbstractThe least squares support vector method is a popular data-driven modeling method which shows better performance and has been successfully applied in a wide range of applications. In this paper, we propose a novel coupled least squares support vector ensemble machine (C-LSSVEM). The proposed coupling ensemble helps improve robustness and produce good classification performance than the single model approach. The proposed C-LSSVEM can choose appropriate kernel types and their parameters in a good coupling strategy with a set of classifiers being trained simultaneously. The proposed method can further minimize the total loss of ensembles in kernel space. Thus, we form an ensemble regressor by co-optimizing and weighing base regressors. Experiments conducted on several datasets such as artificial datasets, UCI classification datasets, UCI regression datasets, handwritten digits datasets and NWPU-RESISC45 datasets, indicate that C-LSSVEM performs better in achieving the minimal regression loss and the best classification accuracy relative to selected state-of-the-art regression and classification techniques.
