Keynote: Autonomous and Autonomic Systems :: Paradigm for Engineering Effective Systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The Autonomous and Autonomic Systems initiative has as its vision the creation of self-directed and self-managing systems to address today’s concerns of complexity and total cost of ownership while meeting tomorrow’s needs for pervasive and ubiquitous computation and communication. This talk reports on research and development, with examples from a deployed Biometric Identification and Tracking System, utilizing the biological metaphor of the autonomic nervous system to computing and communications, in which computer-based systems self-regulate by using automatic reactions to defend, optimize and heal.BIO: Roy Sterritt currently is a Faculty member at the University of Ulster and Researcher within the Computer Science Research Institute (CSRI) and the Centre for Software Process Technologies (CSPT). Prior to this, he spent several years with IBM at North Harbour and IBM Hursley Park, U.K., as a Software Engineer developing intelligent distributed applications to support project management, risk assessment and mobile computing. He then returned to the University of Ulster to research automated and intelligent approaches to the development and testing of fault management telecommunications systems in a series of collaborative projects with Nortel Networks. Sterritt is the author of over 130 technical papers on Artificial Intelligence, Software Engineering, and Autonomic Computing & Communications and has been active within the research community on program and organizing committees and a visiting researcher at British Telecom and NASA. He is also a Vice-Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Engineering of Computer Based Systems (ECBS) and Chair of the IEEE Technical Committee on Autonomous and Autonomic Systems.For more information please visit http://www.infc.ulst.ac.uk/staff/r.sterritt
