Abstract: "Trustworthy Machine Learning-enabled Systems"

This talk will provide a personal perspective on the state of art regarding the automated testing and analysis of software systems enabled by machine learning. Such systems typically contain components relying on machine learning, whose behavior is not specified or coded but driven by training data, but which interact with other components in the system and play a critical role. Typical examples include cyber-physical systems that rely on machine learning in their perception (e.g., analyzing camera images) and control (e.g., sending commands to actuators) layers. In my reflections, I will rely both on my analysis of the state of the art and personal experience in research projects carried out with industrial partners in the automotive domain.
