Our paper “Experimental Comparison of Complex Event Processing Systems in the Maritime Domain” was accepted at MBDW 2020
Complex Event Processing (CEP) ’s main purpose is recognizing interesting phenomena upon streams of data. So its only natural that it would find applications in the maritime domain, where detecting vessel activity plays an important role in monitoring movement at sea. In this study we briefly examine the field of Complex Event Processing; we present two CEP implementations, one based on machine learning techniques and a rule-based system modeled with Event Calculus. Finally, we evaluate their ability in modeling activities that involve multiple vessels, by comparing their results on real-life examples.
