Clustering is a difficult problem especially when we consider the task in the context of a data stream of categorical attributes. In this paper, we propose σ-SCLOPE, a novel algorithm based on SCLOPE’s intuitive observation about cluster histograms. Unlike SCLOPE however, our algorithm consumes less memory per window and has a better clustering runtime for the same data stream in a given window. This positions σ-SCLOPE as a more attractive option over SCLOPE if a minor lost of clustering accuracy is insignificant in the application.
