First Problem Solving Session – May 6 2021

The first online SAS Problem Solving Session at the online Network-Wide Event takes place on Thursday May 6, from 14:30 till 16:30 (CEST).


In this problem solving session, the SAS Early Stage Researchers (ESRs) will present their opinion/stance towards the following three topics, each time using a presentation of 10 minutes per topic:

  1. Should on-line learning be encouraged or discouraged for autonomous systems? How will explainable machine learning impact autonomous system safety?
  2. Safety is often achieved by having some external expert reviewing an artifacts (requirement, concept, software), but this does not scale well for autonomous systems that need to adapt their safety concepts over lifetime. To which degree do you think can we automate the safety processes and engineering? Does your approach require human judgement and if so, how can it be minimized? And what exactly do we mean by dynamic assurance and is it necessary for autonomous systems?
  3. What do you think is the maximum residual risk that society expects for autonomous systems, HAD cars especially? Do you think this value changes with the benefit and comfort such systems bring? And on the other hand: if the media portray autonomous systems as a source of great danger to human life, would that change the perceptions and the result of the legal assessment of a judge adjudicating a case of a defective autonomous system in a car accident where a human lost her life?

After each presentation of 10 minutes, there is the possibility to interact and discuss with the SAS ESRs and other attendees about the specific topic.

Attendance is free of charge, but registration is required using the registration form.
Once you have registered, you will receive the Microsoft Teams link a few days before this session.

Hope to see you there on May 6 2021.
