Closing Keynote by Wil van der Aalst — Process Mining Camp 2019
The last speaker at Process Mining Camp 2019 was Wil van der Aalst from RWTH Aachen in Germany.
In his closing keynote at Process Mining Camp 2016, Wil introduced the concept of “Green Data Science”. He illustrated how the careless application of data analysis techniques can negatively impact citizens, patients, customers and employees in a new form of “pollution”. With great power comes great responsibility!
At last year’s camp, Wil showed us current research from the field of “Responsible Process Mining” that aims to develop new “pollution-aware” data analysis techniques. The research projects were from the areas of “fairness” (how to draw conclusions from data that are fair without sacrificing accuracy too much) and “confidentiality” (how to analyze data without revealing secrets).
As process miners, it is our responsibility to understand the risks of careless data analysis and lack of data protection. Watch Wil’s talk to get a sneak preview of what solutions research can provide in this area.
We will get together for one live-streamed talk each day, with lots of discussion and socializing at the campfire in between. You can read more about this year’s camp format, and why we think it can create a more relaxed and engaging experience, on our updated camp website.
