The Online Divisive-Agglomerative Clustering (ODAC) is an incremental approach for clustering streaming time series using a hierarchical procedure over time. It constructs a tree-like hierarchy of clusters of streams, using a top-down strategy based on the correlation between streams. The system also possesses an agglomerative phase to enhance a dynamic behavior capable of structural change detection. However, the split decision used in the algorithm focus on the crisp boundary between two groups, which implies a high risk since it has to decide based on only a small subset of the entire data. In this work we propose a semi-fuzzy approach to the assignment of variables to newly created clusters, for a better trade-off between validity and performance. Experimental work supports the benefits of our approach.
