Cyber-physical systems pose today new challenges and demand new engineering paradigms that consider, as an integrated part, external states of environment, unknowns and approximations. We will look into dependability and security that are often conflicting properties to the performance and the perceived user-value. Resolving dependability and security challenges is of ultimate importance for future ultra-complex software-intensive smart systems, especially for those with autonomous and cooperative functionality, with multiple property contradictions. Future robotics is about advanced cognitive artificial intelligence controlling ultra-modular self-configurable mechatronic actuators. These actuators are not in the lab – autonomous cars already drive, soon robots will cook in your kitchen, provide medical treatment to your body and play with your kids. In my lecture, I will target current and upcoming threats in this emerging world of connectivity and unlimited computing possibilities, looking at combining of cyber-physical system properties into optimized co-existence.
Dr. Viacheslav Izosimov (shortly Slava) is presently Systems Safety Manager at Semcon Sweden AB. He works in the area of safety-critical embedded systems, functional safety, electrical safety, security and dependability of complex systems. Viacheslav worked at the Machine Design department at The KTH Royal Institute of Technology from 2014 to 2016. At KTH, Viacheslav focused on security and dependability aspects of cyber-physical systems, in particular, looking at autonomous systems and platforms …
