Recent advances in hardware technology have facilitated new ways of collecting data continuously, giving rise to data streams. In many applications, the volume of such data is so large that it may be impossible to store the data on disk. Furthermore, even when the data can be stored, the volume of incoming data may be so large as to be impossible to process. Internet traffic, financial transactions related to securities and options, and sensor-based data collection related to continuous physical observations such as temperature, pressure, human EEG signals or vibrations in manufacturing industries, are typical data streaming scenarios. Thus, the development of machine learning algorithms becomes significantly challenging in this context.

In our view, organizing this workshop is timely because as artificial intelligence-based decisions become more ubiquitous to individuals and society, modeling data streams is going to play a major role on the development of human-centered algorithms and machine learning models that account for the feedback loop between machine and human decisions, which are inherently asynchronous events.

List of topics includes:

Supervised classification models for data streams

Clustering methods for data streams

Discovering association methodology for data streams

Real and virtual concept drift detection methods

Evaluation measures in machine learning for data streams

Anomaly and novelty detection for data streams
