Machine learning approaches have received overwhelming attention from many researchers for solving problems that cannot be ironed out by traditional approaches. However, most of these approaches do not tell the probability estimates of how credible and reliable the output can be for each prediction, and this should not be overlooked because knowing the likelihood of a phenomenon is very important in making the right judgment for high risk problems and critical applications that demand high reliability. Probabilistic output models are highly necessary for risk-sensitive applications because probabilistic estimates provide indication to how much a user can rely on each prediction in the midst of decision-making process. Hence, this paper explores how Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) being one of the most successful machine learning algorithms for single hidden layer feedforward neural networks can be converted to a probabilistic output model.
