We present a novel method for concept drift detection, based on: 1) the development and continuous updating of online sequential extreme learning machines (OS-ELMs) and 2) the quantification of how much the updated models are modified by the newly collected data. The proposed method is verified on two synthetic case studies regarding different types of concept drift and is applied to two public real-world data sets and a real problem of predicting energy production from a wind plant. The results show the superiority of the proposed method with respect to alternative state-of-the-art concept drift detection methods. Furthermore, updating the prediction model when the concept drift has been detected is shown to allow improving the overall accuracy of the energy prediction model and, at the same time, minimizing the number of model updatings.

Abstract

We present a novel method for concept drift detection, based on: 1) the development and continuous updating of online sequential extreme learning machines (OS-ELMs) and 2) the quantification of how much the updated models are modified by the newly collected data. The proposed method is verified on two synthetic case studies regarding different types of concept drift and is applied to two public real-world data sets and a real problem of predicting energy production from a wind plant. The results show the superiority of the proposed method with respect to alternative state-of-the-art concept drift detection methods. Furthermore, updating the prediction model when the concept drift has been detected is shown to allow improving the overall accuracy of the energy prediction model and, at the same time, minimizing the number of model updatings.
