Predictive business process monitoring (PBPM) techniques aim at predicting future process behavior. A trend in PBPM is to use deep learning (DL), more concretely deep neural networks, to capture the entire process information within one predictive model. In most DL-based PBPM techniques, one single model is trained to predict the future behavior of a running process instance. However, especially resource information influences the efficiency and effectiveness of a process as paths through the process model can strongly depend on the resource executing the activities. Thus, a "one-model-fits-all" approach might not result in high predictive performance across all resources, such as humans or machines. Therefore, we design a novel DL-based method for resource-specific next activity predictions. In our preliminary evaluation, we present promising results based on two real-life event logs. Ultimately, we discuss our future research plans.
