Contrary to the previous beliefs that all arrived streaming data are labeled and the class labels are immediately availa- ble, we propose a Semi-supervised classification algorithm for data streams with concept drifts and UNlabeled data, called SUN. SUN is based on an evolved decision tree. In terms of deviation between history concept clusters and new ones generated by a developed clustering algorithm of k-Modes, concept drifts are distinguished from noise at leaves. Extensive studies on both synthetic and real data demonstrate that SUN performs well compared to several known online algorithms on unlabeled data. A conclusion is hence drawn that a feasible reference framework is provided for tackling concept drifting data streams with unlabeled data.
