Recent years have seen tremendous advances in process mining which are reflected by the growing number of commercial process mining tools available today. There are over 25 commercial products supporting process mining (Celonis, Disco, Minit, myInvenio, ProcessGold, QPR, etc.). All support process discovery and can be used to improve compliance and performance issues. All the process mining activities are performed on the basis of even data, which may include direct and indirect sensitive information.

Responsible Data Science (RDS) is a set of technical algorithms and social laws for ensuring Fairness, Accuracy, Confidentiality, and Transparency (FACT) during the whole pipeline of Data Science. In this project, the focus is on confidentiality/privacy in process mining (how to answer questions without revealing secrets?). The goal is to implement/integrate the state-of-the-art privacy preservation techniques in a web-based tool with an easy-to-use interface for users. The web-based tool is PPDP-PM implemented by the Chair of Process and Data Science (PADS).


Good programming skills, specifically Python programming language and web development requirements (Javascript, HTML, CSS, etc.). Knowledge of basic computer science concepts and interest in process mining and responsible data science.
