Marwan Hassani

Dr. Marwan Hassani is assistant professor at the PA group with a focus on Real-Time Process Mining. His research interests include stream data mining, sequential pattern mining of multiple streams, efficient anytime clustering of big data streams and exploration of evolving graph data. He uses customer journey optimizationa and privacy-aware process mining as use cases for his research. Marwan received his PhD (2015) from RWTH Aachen University where he worked also as a postdoc until July 2016. He coauthored more than 60 scientific publications and serves as organizers for several internationally ranked workshops and multiple A* conferences in data mining.

  • 2AMI20 Advanced Process Mining - Understanding and predicting behavior of people and machines in a shared setting (task, project, factory, process, organization) is central to Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Actions of people and machines can be recorded as discrete events in event sequences (logs), event databases (tables, graphs), and real-time event streams. Learning behavioral models of discrete event data Read More ...
  • 2IMI05 Capita selecta process analytics - People interested in the ‘process side’ of information systems can take the course ‘Capita selecta architecture of information systems’. This course will be organized in an ad-hoc manner taking into account the interests of the student. The focus will always be on a particular ‘hot topic’ in the information systems domain. The course can, in Read More ...
  • 2IMI00 Seminar AIS - In this seminar, a group of master students will get in touch with research in the area of Information Systems, where Process Mining and Process Analysis from Event Data are the central themes. We study recent publications in the area of process mining and practical applications on real-life examples, to provide a good insight into Read More ...
  • JM0210 Real-Time Process Mining (JADS) - The Real-Time Process Mining course is an advanced master-level process mining course where the following main contents will be covered: Dimensionality reduction and efficient preprocessing of log files Stream data mining Advanced topics in process mining, like: stream process discovery, online conformance checking and concept drift detection When the focus shifts to advanced topics in Read More ...

  • Online Spatial Prediction Model for Citizens’ Public Space Complaints in Eindhoven -   Smart cities approach does not only emphasize the implementations of new technologies in a city but also highlights the importance of using new technologies for enabling citizens’ engagement in urban planning processes. In that regard, ICTs play a vital role in (i) supporting citizens to report their complaints related to the public spaces (i.e. Read More ...
  • Log-based vs. Model-based Concept Drift Detection - StrProMCDD is a recently published work that detects concept drifts in event streams (see the figure below). StrProMCDD uses several model-based distance measures to detect these deviations using an adaptive window concept. In this assignment, we would like to compare the performance of this model-based approach with log-based stream clustering approaches that try to detect drifts in Read More ...
  • Real-Time Process Mining for Customer Journey Data - Available process discovery have been tested in the customer journey context under offline settings. Recent online process discovery approaches like: https://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/7376771 bring however a lot of added value for a real-time customer journey optimization. The objective of this assignment is to use two different customer journey datasets to test the effectiveness of such approaches for Read More ...
  • Finding Patterns in Evolving Graphs - The analysis of the temporal evolution of dynamic graphs like social networks is a key challenge for understanding complex processes hidden in graph structured data. Graph evolution rules capture such processes on the level of small subgraphs by describing frequently occurring structural changes within a network. Existing rule discovery methods make restrictive assumptions on the Read More ...
  • Using Sequential Pattern Mining to Detect Drifts in Streaming Data - BFSPMiner is an effective and efficient batch-free algorithm for mining sequential patterns over data streams was published very recently https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s41060-017-0084-8. An implementation of the algorithm is available here: https://github.com/Xsea/BFSPMiner. As BFSPMiner has proven to be effective (see Figures 10-14 of the paper) in different domains (see Table 1 in the paper), we would like to Read More ...
