Incremental Discretization Algorithm (IDA)

Incremental Discretization Algorithm (IDA)

Incremental Discretization Algorithm (IDA) approximates quantile-based discretization on the entire data stream encountered to date by maintaining a random sample of the data which is used to calculate the cut points. IDA uses the reservoir sampling algorithm to maintain a sample drawn uniformly at random from the entire stream up until the current time.
