    • thesis topic: integrating information from different sources (using word embeddings in text analysis and data quality techniques)
    • Federated Learning in Scientific Data Ecosystems.
      Investigating how, given a large set of experimental data and a set of existing models for simulating experiments, it is possible to automatically evaluate precision of the data and/or the models. The models deal with combustion data, but no preliminary knowledge in chemistry is required. Thesis Topic: in the field of information systems, applying federated machine learning techniques.
    • Data quality in process mining
      The thesis concerns the evaluation of the impact on process mining of data quality problems. In particular focusing of analysis of delays due timeliness issues. Thesis topic: in the field of information systems, using data quality and process mining techniques, with a focus on trials in the juridical sector.
