Abstract

An online classification system maintained by a learner can besubject to latency and filtering of training examples which can impact on itsclassification accuracy especially under concept drift. A life-cycle model isdeveloped to provide a framework for studying this problem. Meta dataemerges from this model which it is proposed can enhance online learningsystems. In particular, the definition of the time-stamp of an example, ascurrently used in the literature, is shown to be problematic and an alternative isproposed.
