Incremental or Online Modelling

The modelling approaches we have discussed here are what we might think of as batch learners. The model builders take a training dataset to build a model that might then be deployed. If we want to update the model then the process begins again from a new training dataset, in batch mode, to build a new model.

An alternative paradigm is to incrementally build a model. Such approaches are also often referred to as online model building.
