Process mining aims at gaining insights into business processes by analysing event data recorded during process execution. The majority of existing process mining techniques works offline, i.e. using static, historical data stored in event logs. Recently, the notion of online process mining has emerged, whereby techniques are applied on live event streams, as process executions un- fold. Analysing event streams allows us to gain instant insights into business processes. However, current techniques assume the input stream to be completely free of noise and other anomalous behaviour. Hence, applying these techniques on real data leads to results of inferior quality. In this paper, we propose an event processor that enables us to effectively filter out spurious events from a live event stream. Our experiments show that we are able to effectively filter out spurious events from the input stream and, as such, enhance online process mining results.
