Behavioural Analytics and Blockchain Applications - a Reliability View


This talk will cover research and insights from the speaker’s last 7 years of research on two topics of relevance to the RSDA workshop. The first part will be about behavioural data analytics for reliability and dependability purposes, i.e., with a focus on sequences of events, rather than static structures or the presence of certain events in a log. Specifically, the approach of using Process Mining techniques to gain insights into traces of logged events will be presented.
The second part of the talk will be centred around a summary of insights into security, dependability, and reliability aspects of blockchain applications. With the introduction of smart contracts, blockchain technology has become a general-purpose code execution framework, and architects and developers need to understand the specific implications on security and dependability when building applications on blockchain.
