I'm working on a project that involves concept drift detection for a time series. Are there any well-known techniques/methods/algorithms that are known to be effective for this sort of problem?

Currently, I was thinking of using a Kalman filter approach.

You might find these useful:

  • Learn++.NSE from Prof.Robi Polikar. This is his official page which offers lots of additional information, papers on the topic etc. and it is a great starting point.
  • The GitHub repository of gditzler contains an implementation of incremental learners in MATLAB.

Additionally the Concept Drift wiki page, under sections Projects and Meetings has lots of other materials.hth.

I came across a paper

  • "Incremental Learning of Support Vector Machines" by Classiffier Combining by Wen and Lu.

stating superior performance and efficiency than concept drift methods.
