From Runtime Failures to Patches: Study of Patch Generation in Production 

Finalized

Patch creation is one of the most important actions in the life cycle of an application. Creating patches is a time-consuming task. Not only because it is difficult to create a sound and valid patch, but also because it requires the intervention of humans. Indeed, a user must report the bug, and a developer must reproduce it and fix it, which takes much time. To address this problem, techniques that automate this task have been created. However, those techniques still require a developer to reproduce the bug and encode it as a failing test case. This requirement drastically reduces the applicability of the approaches since it still relies on humans. During this talk, we will explore two techniques that remove the human intervention from the automatic patch generation by putting as close as possible the patch generation to the production environment where the data and human interactions that lead to the bug are present. The presented techniques exploit the production data state to detect bugs, generate and validate patches. For more information: mikolas.janota@gmail.com

Talk with Professor Gert Jan Hofstede - Artificial sociality, modelling the social mind 

Finalized

Gert Jan will discuss ‘artificial sociality’, the subject for which he was recently appointed professor. It is about foundational conceptual models of human sociality based on social science, for use in agent-based models of complex systems in the life sciences. Artificial sociality involves two main components: designing individual minds, including emotions and underlying social motives, and modelling self-organization of behaviour at the level of the social system. A special focus rests on safety and resilience in socio-‘something’ systems in which human components are replaced by technical ones.

16 JUL 2018 IT Governance in the Board Room 

Finalized

Disruptive new technologies are increasing and have an important influence on the business we are doing. Previously, the board could delegate, ignore or avoid it, but that is no longer the case. Yet, it seems that 80% of boards of directors are still looking away. Digital transformation seems to be "the elephant in the boardroom". In this session, we will address that boards need to extend their governance accountability, from often a mono-focus on finance and legal as proxy to corporate governance, to include technology and provide digital leadership and organizational capabilities to ensure that the enterprise’s IT sustains and extends the enterprise’s strategies and objectives.
