Pocket Data Mining PDM is a new term describing collaborative mining of streaming data in mobile and distributed computing environments by researchers Frederic Stahl, Mohamed Medhat Gaber, Max Bramer, and Philip S. Yu. With sheer amounts of data streams are now available for subscription on our smart mobile phones, the potential of using this data for decision making using data stream mining techniques has now been achievable owing to the increasing power of these handheld devices. Wireless communication among these devices using Bluetooth and WiFi technologies has opened the door wide for collaborative mining among the mobile devices within the same range that are running data mining techniques targeting the same application.
