Extreme learning machine (ELM) is a new novel learning algorithm for generalized single-hidden layer feedforward networks (SLFNs). Although it shows fast learning speed in many areas, there is still room for improvement in computational cost. To address this issue, this paper proposes an improved ELM (FRCF-ELM) which employs the full rank Cholesky factorization to compute output weights instead of traditional SVD. In addition, this paper proves in theory that the proposed FRCF-ELM has lower
