In applying this theory, several additional contributions are made: (1) an improved incremental learning SVM algorithm is proposed, referred to as IILS, which is appropriate for data stream classification; (2) by focusing on system load conditions and node performance, an improved incremental learning SVM algorithm, referred to as DS-IILS, is developed to resolve the classification problems in a large-scale data stream; (3) these algorithms are implemented in a cloud computing system and are used to analyze the behaviors of a bank's customers to predict their purchase trends.
