  author={Jo{\~a}o Gama and Petr Kosina},
Decision rules, which can provide good interpretability and flexibility for data mining tasks, have received very little attention in the stream mining community so far. In this work we introduce a new algorithm to learn rule sets, designed for open-ended data streams. The proposed algorithm is able to continuously learn compact ordered and unordered rule sets. The experimental evaluation shows competitive results in comparison with VFDT and C4.5rules.
