Advanced Process Mining (2AMI20) 2022

Many real-life phenomena studied with Data Science methods unfold over time. They often involve many people, objectes, agents, machines, entites, etc. that interact with each other while distributed in time and space. Such dynamics are called processes and are present everywhere: in software systems medical treatments, logistics systems, manufacturing, and even entire organizations. Process mining Read More …

Event Granularity in User Journeys

Context This project is defined in the scope of the Smart Journey Mining project [1, 9].
