2023 Year in Review Highlights Impact of SEI Research and Development

April 15, 2024—The Software Engineering Institute (SEI) today released the 2023 SEI Year in Review, a report highlighting some of the SEI’s most noteworthy accomplishments of the 2023 fiscal year. The Year in Review spans the institute’s technical portfolio of research and development in software engineering, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence (AI) at the intersection of government, industry, and academia.

The articles in the 2023 edition show how the SEI combines its body of knowledge with external material and systems engineering to deliver impact to Department of Defense (DoD) and other U.S. government organizations and end users. Leveraging collaboration, the SEI advanced the state of the art and practice of software and related disciplines.

“AI may get headlines, but the SEI’s other core competencies in cybersecurity and software continue to support our national security mission,” wrote SEI Director and CEO Paul Nielsen in the Year in Review’s introduction. “AI surely won’t be the last uncertain technology we face in our unique mission to advance the art of software engineering.”
