COMP523A Data Stream Mining

15 Points

Data streams are everywhere, from F1 racing over electricity networks to news feeds. Data stream mining relies on and develops new incremental algorithms that process streams under strict resource limitations. This paper focuses on, as well as extends the methods implemented in MOA, an open source stream mining software suite currently being developed by the Machine Learning group.

Learning Outcomes
Students will learn to how select and apply an appropriate method for a given data stream problem; they will learn how to design and implement such algorithms in frameworks like MOA; they will learn how to evaluate and compare different solutions, and how to summarize their findings in a report; they will learn how to select published research and replicate it.
