A FRAMEWORK FOR DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ADAPTIVE STREAM MINING SYSTEMS With the increasing need for accurate mining and classification from multimedia data content, and the growth of such multimedia applications in mobile and distributed architectures, stream mining systems require increasing amounts of flexibility, extensibility, and adaptivity for effective deployment. In this talk, I will present a novel approach to address this challenge. This approach rigorously integrates foundations of dataflow modeling for high level signal processing system design, and adaptive stream mining based on dynamic topologies of classifiers. In particular, I will introduce a new design environment, called the lightweight dataflow for dynamic data driven adaptive systems (LiD4E) environment. LiD4E provides formal semantics, rooted in dataflow principles, for design and implementation of a broad class of multimedia stream mining topologies. I will demonstrate the capabilities of LiD4E using a face detection application that systematically adapts the type of classifier used based on dynamically changing application constraints.
