Towards Assuring Adaptive Software


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 7 September


Increasingly, software is called upon to be adaptable in order to operate in complex and dynamic environments. However, obtaining confidence that adaptive software will function correctly is a challenge that is not met by existing approaches.

We propose an alternative approach based on empirical investigation of properties of errors in adaptive software, and of the relationship between reliability and correctness. This research aims to tackle an important hurdle for the adoption of adaptive systems, and to increase our understanding of the properties of errors in adaptive software.

I will also (time permitting!) talk briefly about Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) under the title: MOOCs: Tsunami or storm in a teacup?
