TECoSA Seminar – Software-Enabled Solutions for Human-on-the-Loop Autonomous Systems

March 7, 15:0016:00

We aim to bring you a TECoSA Seminar on the first Thursday of each month during term-time.  All are welcome to attend and we look forward to some lively discussions. Members can accept the Outlook invitations, non-members can email to register.

Our guest speaker for March is Rebekka Wohlrab, Assistant Professor in Software Engineering at Chalmers University of Technology, and adjunct faculty member at Carnegie Mellon University.  The session will be given via Zoom (

ABSTRACT: Software is a key driver of innovation in complex autonomous systems, such as IoT systems, smart cloud systems, or robots. To ensure that such systems are useful and trusted by members of our society, they need to act in an understandable way and meet their users’ requirements. Requirements in this context are often related to qualities, such as performance, security, reliability, or safety. Humans tend to have preferences regarding what requirements are important in different contexts. To help systems understand these requirements and how they change, software-based approaches are needed that enable humans to give input, monitor systems, and intervene when necessary. In this talk, Rebekka will present recent work on how such solutions can be designed to develop better human-on-the-loop autonomous systems.
