In the real world concepts are often not stable but change with time. Typical examples of this are weather prediction rules and customers’ preferences. The underlying data distribution may change as well. Often these changes make the model built on old data inconsistent with the new data, and regular updating of the model is necessary. This problem, known(More)
Spam filtering is a particularly challenging machine learning task as the data distribution and concept being learned changes over time. It exhibits a particularly awkward form of concept drift as the change is driven by spammers wishing to circumvent spam filters. In this paper we show that lazy learning techniques are appropriate for such dynamically(More)
In the real world concepts are often not stable but change with time. A typical example of this in the biomedical context is antibiotic resistance, where pathogen sensitivity may change over time as new pathogen strains develop resistance to antibiotics that were previously effective. This problem, known as concept drift, complicates the task of learning a(More)
Ensemble techniques have been successfully applied in the context of supervised learning to increase the accuracy and stability of classification. Recently, analogous techniques for cluster analysis have been suggested. Research has demonstrated that, by combining a collection of dissimilar clusterings, an improved solution can be obtained. In this paper,(More)
A popular method for creating an accurate classifier from a set of training data is to train several classifiers, and then to combine their predictions. The ensembles of simple Bayesian classifiers have traditionally not been a focus of research. However, the simple Bayesian classifier has much broader applicability than previously thought. Besides its high(More)
Recently conducted clinical studies prove the utility of Coronary Computed Tomography Angiography (CCTA) as a viable alternative to invasive angiography for the detection of Coronary Artery Disease (CAD). This has lead to the development of several algorithms for automatic detection and grading of coronary stenoses. However, most of these methods focus on(More)
