South Africa-Sweden University Forum (SASUF) UNIZULU Colloquium
The fourth industrial revolution (4IR) refers to a set of highly disruptive technologies which are blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres, collectively referred to as cyber-physical systems. Technologies such as cognitive computing, cloud computing, the internet of things, big data, augmented/virtual reality, 3D systems, artificial intelligence and power supply are transforming social, economic and political systems and putting huge pressure on leaders and policy-makers to respond. However, there are challenges inherent in the 4IR including job losses and disruption, ignoring decolonization and the potential for non-on-inclusive growth has the potential to increase social instability within countries.

Making systems trustworthy by model checking and symbolic execution
Sustainable digitalization requires trustworthy systems. However, today’s ever-increasing software complexity makes it impossible to build dependable systems with traditional approaches. We will look at past and ongoing projects in program and system analysis and verification, which show how emerging research platforms can pave the way towards long-lived, dependable systems in the future.
In particular, we will have a session on Java Pathfinder, a Java program analysis tool that is developed by over 20 universities world wide, including Stellenbosch University and KTH. We will also look at other groundbreaking techniques in verification and advanced testing.
