The Software Engineering Group, also called Descartes Group, is headed by Prof. Dr. Samuel Kounev and focuses on a range of topics related to the engineering of software for building dependable and efficient distributed systems, such as cloud-based systems, cyber-physical systems, and Internet-of-Things (IoT) applications. Our research is inspired by the vision of Self-Aware Computing Systems, designed with built-in model learning and reasoning capabilities enabling autonomic and proactive decision making at run-time.
Our research is aimed at novel methods, techniques and tools for the engineering of dependable and efficient computer-based systems, including classical software systems and cyber-physical systems.
Secure Software Systems is a research group headed by Prof. Dr. Alexandra Dmitrienko. It focuses on a wide range of topics related to the security and privacy of computing platforms and networks, ranging from secure software engineering to security and privacy of mobile, cyber-physical, IoT and decentralized systems. Our research aims to address new security and privacy-related challenges emerging due to ubiquitous digitization, resulting in increasing data collection and fast growing complexity and heterogeneity of systems, as well as technological shifts from centralized to more robust and resilient decentralized solutions.
Prof. Dr. Dmitrienko will hold a talk at Surrey's University seminar on "Vulnerability Detection in Ethereum Smart Contracts using Deep Neural Networks and Transfer Learning" tomorrow, Thursday the 25th of March 2021. No registration is needed to enter the Zoom call. Read for the rest of the article for more information.
The Network and Distributed System Security Symposium (NDSS) 2021 and co-located workshops start virtually this very weekend, at 21st of February, and go until February, 25th. Prof. Dr. Dmitrienko is part of this year’s CoronaDef’s panelists.
“Intel, in collaboration with Avast and Borsetta, launched the Private AI Collaborative Research Institute to advance and develop technologies in privacy and trust for decentralized artificial intelligence (AI). The companies issued a call for research proposals earlier this year and selected the first nine research projects to be supported by the institute at eight universities worldwide.”
