Symbolization of time series is an important preprocessing subroutine for many data mining tasks. However, it is usually difficult, if not impossible, to apply the traditional static symbolization approach on streaming time series, because of either the low efficiency of re-computing the typical sub-series, or the low capability of representing the up-to-date series characters. This paper presents a novel symbolization method, in which the typical sub-series are dynamically adjusted to fit the up-to-date characters of streaming time series. It works in an incremental form without scanning the whole date set. Experiments on data set from stock market justify the superiority of the proposed method over the traditional ones.
