Abstract : The proliferation of sensing devices and cost- and energy-efficient embedded processors has contributed to an increasing interest in adaptive stream mining (ASM) systems. In this class of signal processing systems, knowledge is extracted from data streams in real-time as the data arrives, rather than in a store-now, process later fashion. The evolution of machine learning methods in many application areas has contributed to demands for efficient and accurate information extraction from streams of data arriving at distributed, mobile, and heterogeneous processing nodes. To enhance accuracy, and meet the stringent constraints in which they must be deployed, it is important for ASM systems to be effective in adapting knowledge extraction approaches and processing configurations based on data characteristics and operational conditions. In this thesis, we address these challenges in design and implementation of ASM systems. We develop systematic methods and supporting design tools for ASM systems that integrate (1) foundations of dataflow modeling for high level signal processing system design, and (2) the paradigm on Dynamic Data-Driven Application Systems (DDDAS). More specifically, the contributions of this thesis can be broadly categorized in to three major directions 1. We develop a new design framework that systematically applies dataflow methodologies for high level signal processing system design, and adaptive stream mining based on dynamic topologies of classifiers. In particular, we introduce a new design environment, called the lightweight dataflow for dynamic data driven application systems environment (LiD4E). LiD4E provides formal semantics, rooted in dataflow principles, for design and implementation of a broad class of stream mining topologies. Using this novel application of dataflow methods, LiD4E facilitates the efficient and reliable mapping and adaptation of classifier topologies into implementations on embedded platfoms.
