This talk will first introduce the main randomization-based feedforward neural networks with closed-form solutions. The popular instantiation of the feedforward type called random vector functional link neural network (RVFL) originated in early 1990s. RVFL variants will be empirically evaluated. Subsequently, deep versions of RVFL will be presented as a single and ensemble classifiers. The talk will also present extensive benchmarking studies using classification and forecasting datasets. If time permits, oblique random forest and kernel ridge regression will also be briefly discussed.
