In light of increasing automation and the introduction of autonomous systems, dependability will certainly become a key concern for developers, integrators and operators of these systems, as the concept compromises its availability, reliability, maintainability, safety and security properties.

New developments, such as the use of learning algorithms, machine learning, and the introduction of agile methods in system development raise new questions. We examine questions about dependability and discuss possibilities and limits of self-learning and autonomous systems with regard to dependability.

  • Can traditional dependability concepts and methods be applied to self-learning systems, and if so, where are the challenges?
  • How can measures for securing dependability aspects be integrated into the agile development process?
  • Can artificial intelligence be used to ensure dependability?
  • Under which conditions can reliability and operational safety in machine learning systems be ensured and how can risks be minimized?

Participation is free of charge.
