Prediction of Complex Event Graphs with Neural Networks

keywords: Event graph mining, neural network classifier, process mining, sequence prediction
A key problem domain inside Robotic Process Automation is the automatic discovery of workflow process schemes. Considering current process mining technologies, graph-based approaches dominate the industry. On the other hand, the conventional methods suffer from low time efficiency and varying accuracy. Machine learning-based methods can provide better efficiency, but they have significant limitations considering schema flexibility. The paper presents a novel neural network-based schema induction model for the discovery of event patterns containing parallel and optional sequences of different actors. This model can process more complex event graphs and situations than the conventional methods. The performed analysis and test results show the unique power of this approach in process schema mining.
