Abstract (Summary of the Work)

Classification problem is a popular topic within machine learning community. One of the major problem in classification task is how to handle incoming patterns which are unusual and different in some measure. For such novel input the classifier should be able to distinguish them as unknown type and don't make any decision. In this work we try to address that problem.
