The deep multiple kernel learning (DMKL) method has caused widespread concern due to its better results compared with shallow multiple kernel learning. However, existing DMKL methods, which have a fixed number of layers and fixed type of kernels, have poor ability to adapt to different data sets and are difficult to find suitable model parameters to improve the test accuracy. In this paper, we propose a self-adaptive deep multiple kernel learning (SA-DMKL) method. Our SA-DMKL method can adapt

Experiments on the three datasets of University of California—Irvine (UCI) and image dataset Caltech 256 validate the effectiveness of the proposed method on three aspects.
