„Connecting the V for a Connected World“

As a keynote speaker, Dipl.-Ing. Robert Karban, CAE Software and Systems Environment Chief Engineer from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), who will speak on “Connecting the V for a Connected World”. The V in the title stands for the V-Modell, a standard procedure in system and software development. Developing space missions today also requires a really huge integrated system and software engineering work. In his keynote address, Karban will address the challenges that system engineers and software developers are accompanying in the construction of spacecraft today. Platforms such as OpenMBEE (Model Based Engineering Environment), Project Jupyter, SysML v2 (Systems Modeling Language), but also own solutions developed by JPL are shown. In addition, Karban will demonstrate how NASA's JPL software engineering environments are used to enable the development of space flights in today's connected world. By the way, Karban is Austrian and studied at the Vienna University of Technology.

Modern Demand FPrecasting WITH deep learning
(30 min)

Demand forecasting - this means creating demand forecasts or forecasting demand - has been used in several industries for many years. Both in retail and in manufacturing companies. The explosion of amounts of data and the ever increasing computing power, as well as the further developments of machine learning methods make it possible today to solve this extremely difficult and complex problem with robust forecasts. Planning security is the buzzword here, which is of great concern to many companies.

With reliable and accurate forecasts about the demand behavior and the required quantities, planning security can be guaranteed along the entire value chain.

The ultimate Battle – C# vs Java (30 MIN)

“Get to know a reasonable operating system first. You only know one ". - "You are only jealous because our applications are so fast. How was it with the interpreter again? ”.
Everyone knows one or a similar exchange of blows - from kindergarten to professional life, the eternal confrontation of who or what is better is a constant one. Your own strategy is always higher, faster, further than that of the others ...

Well. C # vs Java, interpreted natively against - this is finally being discussed. The ultimate fight between C # and Java. Where is light, where is shadow. Gustav Paulus and Erich Stadler highlight both in their talk and look at the differences with vivid examples. But one thing should never be neglected: to implement customer requirements in a modern IT landscape.

AI and the verification problem - a status quo (30 MIN)

On two occasions, I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question.” (C. Babbage)

With the arrival of self-learning systems, where the designers often no longer know what the function to be learned looks like, the problem of garbage-in-garbage-out has become more acute and the question arises how such systems can be verified. Especially with regard to the use of AI in (security) critical and / or social areas, answering this question is of fundamental importance.

The lecture is therefore first about a review and a summary of the current state of research. Building on this, the lecture highlights some of the AIT's approaches and concludes with an outlook on what is to come, including various activities by standardization committees.

Orsolya Nemeth | LieberLieber Software GmbH

Copyright and artificial intelligence (30 min)

In times of deep fakes and AI-generated books, the question increasingly arises whether these works enjoy copyright protection and, if so, who is the author. Software that writes a new book by learning from existing works is the author of the sources the author of the new book? The manufacturer of the software? Or the software user who created the new book.

At least since the legal dispute over which the monkey selfie is entitled to copyright, it has become clear that with the advancement of artificial intelligence, many copyright issues must also be dealt with.

This session deals with the problems of copyright and artificial intelligence, which is already clear under the current legal situation, to which there are still no answers, in which direction the legislation is moving, and which positions of the parties involved are opposed to one another.

Digitization with old software

Individually developed company software systems have grown over decades and represent the operating processes in a highly specialized manner.
However, software engineers and business analysts are under enormous pressure. Because advancing digitalization demands the rapid, timely implementation of extensions and adjustments.

On the other hand, it is extremely time-consuming for software engineers to find out the dependencies and interrelationships manually and reliably in long-standing software systems with many thousands of programs.
As a result, adjustments and changes to further digitize the company organization take longer and longer and cause constantly increasing costs - circumstances that are quickly creating a competitive disadvantage, especially in today's world.

The session shows the practical application and experience with the automated analysis of legacy systems and their representation (as one possibility) in virtual reality.


13:30 till 13:55 Uhr

Dr. Johann Stiebellehner | AVESOR Ges.m.b.H.

Interdisciplinary Research in Virtual and Augmented Reality

Virtual and augmented reality (VR/AR) technologies are creating opportunities for interdisciplinary research that can change our society in profound ways. For instance: We can simulate vision impairments in VR/AR to investigate their impact on visual perception and gain insights to inform architectural design and increase the accessibility for people with vision impairments.

VR offers a safe and inexpensive way to create training environments for flood response personnel, or firefighters, as an alternative to costly or unfeasible physical training environments. VR training games can be used in psychotherapy, to motivate children with attentional disorders to train their cognitive abilities in a controlled environment that offers the possibility to instantly measure and record performance.

This talk will highlight the benefits of VR/AR for interdisciplinary research, present selected research projects and discuss current and possible future developments for VR/AR technologies.

Security by engineering: reliability and security as a quality feature
(30 min)

The requirements for software are increasing enormously, especially for security. The increasing networking and increasingly central tasks of the software make the topic essential for software systems. However, security is multi-layered and must be considered very intensively when developing software. Not only the design of the software, but also the implementation of the algorithms can make software vulnerable. In addition to encryption and authentication methods, tools have been developed that can detect security problems.

Special analysis methods and test methods help to identify security problems early and before any effects have to be feared. The SCCH is researching the further development of these methods based on its own analysis expertise and has developed tools that can be used especially in the automation area and in the IOT environment.

In addition to providing an overview of this area, the lecture also provides an insight into current research.

Self-Service AI with Power BI Desktop (30 min)

Power BI Desktop is Microsoft’s free tool for self-service BI. It delivers exciting new features every month and Gartner has declared it the leading BI tool in 2019 and 2020 (which Tableau and Qlik have left behind).

In this talk, we want to take a look at what Power BI Desktop has to offer in terms of artificial intelligence. These functions range from a few clicks in context menus, e.g. B. Explain deviations over time through intelligent visualizations to the ability to tap cognitive services and Azure Machine Learning Services and to enrich the data loaded in Power BI Desktop. We will not linger with foils, but look at the features directly in the product.

Main drivers for transformation of mobilty (30 min)

Mobility will change in the future. Silicon Valley tells us about the futuristic future of mobility. Autonomous electric vehicles that no longer have owners but are available at the touch of a button on a smartphone are the vision of a fully networked mobility of the future. These will then no longer be brought to customers by existing OEMs, but by digital giants such as Google or Apple.
The vehicles are hyper-networked and can read almost every wish from my lips or face. But do these innovations make sense? Will they really become reality?
Are we ready yet? And if no, what is missing on the way there? There are good reasons to change mobility in the world.

There are 3 main drivers for transformation of Future Mobilty.
- Urbanization
- Climate change
- Digitisation

Automation and process efficiency through digitalization (30 min)

The path to democratized automation
Everyone is talking about digitization - everyone is trying to adapt their company to the rapidly changing market influences.
New applications are being implemented, cloud technologies are entering the market, old legacy systems are blocking transformations - what strategies do companies have?

Processes between the applications are often neglected and so a confusing and complicated zoo is quickly created from different solutions.
This brings with it a number of challenges that we will address in more detail.

How can processes be simplified?
How can automation be democratized?
How can process management be outsourced?
What are the trends in Scandinavia and what can we learn from them?

‚Innovation is eating the software world!' (30 min)

How do we bring innovation into your company's DNA?
Nowadays, the word innovation is used by every manager or organizational manager, you could even say it's hype! This is probably true for some companies, but in fact innovation is a key factor that can change the market and guarantee corporate sustainability.

'We already read software is eating the world' in 2011. Now it should actually read 'Innovation is eating the software world!'.
But how?

"I have to finish the project first!" Does that seem familiar to you? Your employees have 'no time' to deal with creative approaches in their company. Despite many design thinking workshops and hackathons, the majority of traditional companies are not making progress with innovation processes.

In this lecture we will go through the different creative approaches that successful companies have built up to establish a creative culture.

Stop the agile dogmas and cargo cult - welcome common sense! (30 min)

Many users are irritated because of the many different forms of the announced "right" agile working methods. Binary questions "agile / not agile" arise. Colorful, technically excellent schemes suggest the agile paradise and ultimately place people again only as an element of trivial controllable systems.

What should actually be achieved with "agility" - especially "business agility" or "new work"? These are neither an end in themselves nor a self-realization.
Why are service approaches so helpful? What behaviors can you expect? What are the dangers of copying? Is agility only for medium and large companies?

We talk about all of this with respect for people and disrespect for all global thought viruses!
