Operator-splitting methods have gained popularity in various areas of computational sciences, including machine learning. In this article, we present a novel nonsmooth and nonconvex formulation and its efficient associated solution algorithm to derive a sparse predictive machine learning model. The model structure is based on the so-called extreme learning machine with randomly generated basis. Our computational experiments confirm the efficiency of the proposed method, when a bold selection of the timestep is made. Comparative tests also indicate interesting results concerning the use of the l0 seminorm for ultimate sparsity.
