Verification and Validation of Autonomous Systems Software

Purpose
The purpose of this workshop is to explore the current industrial best practices in Software development of Systems with Emergent Behaviours, like the complex or the autonomous ones with learning capabilities, and to identify the challenges that need to be met to move towards their commercial deployment.

Many examples of such complex systems are being widely discussed, in most cases exploiting the “intelligence” of modern computing and communications systems for the control and performance optimisation of systems of various sizes (e.g. in multi-agent systems, intelligent mobility, autonomous cars) or with varying degrees of learning capabilities (machine Learning systems for Medical Diagnosis or decision support) or autonomy.

The output of this workshop will be an improved understanding of the area which will be used as an input to the Innovate UK ICT strategy 2016-2020. This strategy will drive the funding opportunities and other support offered by Innovate UK in ICT over that period.

Objectives
1. Establish a good understanding of the state of the art in cognitive or autonomous systems both in industry practices and in academic research
2. Explore the characteristics and requirements for the next generation of autonomous systems, and the bounds of their autonomy or the scope/context of their operation.
3. Identify ways for better risk and cost trade-offs in the SW development life cycle of such systems
4. Discuss the requirements and procedures for ensuring that bounds can on the behaviour of such systems can be established even when they are confronted with novel situations.
