Title:Part II - Roberto Pietrantuono “Software engineering challenges in the twenties”
Date: February 15, 2019 (Friday)
Time: 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Venue: Room 121, 1/F, Ho Sin-hang Engineering Building, The Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shatin, N.T.
Speaker: Prof. Roberto Pietrantuono
Assistant Professor
Computer Engineering at the University of Naples “Federico II”


In the next decade, software systems are likely to be: deployed in a cyber-physical world, autonomous, self adaptive, driven by artificial intelligence, decentralized and subject to very frequent releases and unanticipated evolution.  It is arguable whether the traditional software engineering paradigm or more agile variants, based on foreseeable operating conditions, can cope with the highly dynamic characteristics of future software systems. This short seminar will highlight the main characteristics and challenges of next generation software systems from the point of view of the software engineering concepts and methodologies needed to engineer them.



Roberto Pietrantuono is Assistant Professor at University of Naples “Federico II”, where he teaches software engineering. His research interests are in the areas of software reliability engineering, software testing, and verification of critical software systems. He has co-authored over 60 papers in these research areas. He is a Co-Founder of Critiware s.r.l., a spin-off company working in critical systems engineering, and Senior Member of IEEE.
