2023 SEI Research Review Cultivates Curiosity
October 26, 2023—The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) today opened registration for its 2023 Research Review. The annual event showcases the most innovative SEI research and development projects from the past year. The 2023 Research Review will be held as a live webcast on Wednesday, November 8, from 1-4 p.m. EST. Register for free to receive advanced notification of pre-recorded Research Review videos.
During the webcast, panels of SEI researchers will discuss their projects and answer viewer questions. Videos about these projects will be available online one week before the event. Viewers are encouraged to watch the videos and submit questions for the researchers ahead of November 8, though questions will also be taken the day of the webcast.
This year’s theme, “Cultivating curiosity,” highlights the spirit of inquiry driving SEI researchers to ask questions, evaluate existing practices, and seek creative approaches to addressing the most pressing software, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence (AI) challenges.
Speakers at the 2023 Research Review will discuss the methods, prototypes, and tools aimed at the most important problems facing the Department of Defense, industry, and academia. Attendees will learn how the SEI’s work in areas such as model-based systems engineering (MBSE), DevSecOps, machine learning (ML), and AI engineering tackle digital content forgery, computing at the tactical edge, threat hunting, continuous estimation, cyber-physical systems, and more.
The program will include the following topics:
- Leveraging Adversarial Machine Learning Techniques to Perform Query-Access Fairness Evaluations
- Moving Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) from Research to Practice: Defining and Validating an XAI Process Framework
- Portend: Drift Planning in Machine Learning Systems
- Formal Arguments for Large-Scale Assurance (FALSA)
- Detection of Malicious Code Using Static Taint Analysis
- Building a Security Operations Center (SOC) Knowledge Base
- Applied Automated Repair of Static Analysis Alerts
- Software Architecture for Systems that Use Quantum Computers
- Co-Design for Edge AI: Application-Specific System on Chip
Tom Longstaff, the SEI’s chief technology officer, will host the 2023 Research Review. “You can expect thought-provoking discussions, in-depth technical analyses, and explorations into the potential that unfolds when curiosity drives innovation,” said Longstaff. “Through expert panel discussions, learn how our collaborations have helped us to rapidly move research into practice, channeling the spark of curiosity to develop practical solutions.”
