The Droid You're Looking For: C-4PM, a Conversational Agent for Declarative Process Mining

The effective presentation of process models to non-expert users in a way that allows them to understand and query these models is a well-known research challenge. Conversational interfaces, with their low expertise requirements, offer a potential solution. While procedural models like Petri nets are not ideal for linguistic presentation, declarative models, specifically the Declare specification, provide a more suitable option. This paper introduces C-4PM, the first conversational interface for declarative process specifications. C-4PM facilitates tasks such as consistency, conformance, and model checking through a conversation-driven modular pipeline. The feasibility of the tool was assessed through a preliminary evaluation on a healthcare process.
