In this paper we present a dynamic classification scheme involving Single-hidden Layer Feedforward Neural (SLFN) network-based non-linear data mapping and test sample-specific labeled data selection in multiple levels. The number of levels is dynamically determined by the test sample under consideration, while the use of Extreme Learning Machine (ELM) algorithm for SLFN network training leads to fast operation. The proposed dynamic classification scheme has been applied to human action recognition by employing the Bag of Visual Words (BoVW)-based action video representation providing enhanced classification performance compared to the static classification approach.
