These objects are encountered repeatedly and each time with different definition and values. Examples are (a) companies registered at stock exchange and reporting their progress at the end of each year, and (b) students whose performance is evaluated at the end of each semester. On such data, domain experts also pose questions on how the individual objects will evolve: would it be beneficial to invest in a given company, given both the company's individual performance thus far and the drift experienced in the model?

While there is much research on how models evolve/change over time [Ntoutsi et al., 2011a], little is done to predict the change of individual objects when the states are not known a priori. In this work, we propose a framework that learns the clusters to which the o
