Abstract: Formal Methods Software Development and safety Critical Systems

Software is getting more and more pervasive in the current world. This is particularly true for the safety critical systems where, for the highest safety levels, an error may induce injuries or deaths.
Designing and building such systems, compliant with their related standards, is a difficult task. It requires expert human resources, experience, and extreme care at all the stages of the development. The use of formal methods will be demonstrated during this presentation, for system / software development and for data validation, through a number of significant cases from industry.


 About the Speaker

Thierry Lecomte is R&D project Director at CLEARSY Systems Engineering in Aix en Provence (France).

He holds an Engineering Degree in Robotics from IMT Lille Douai (1989) and a Master Degree in Artificial Intelligence from the University of Technology of Compiègne (1989).

Currently he is in charge of the exploitation and dissemination of disruptive technologies for the automation of safety critical systems, including the B formal method, the CLEARSY Safety Platform and the Formal Data Validation. Thierry Lecomte has experience in the area of Computer Science, with emphasis on Formal Methods. More specifically, he was involved industrial and R&D projects aimed at smartcard certification and safety-critical systems in the Railways, defect-free embedded software, reverse engineering of black-box software (no source code), code generation for hardware and software targets, automated and interactive provers, deep learning applied to sound and image analysis. 

He has taught Software Development with the B Method at Universities and Engineering Schools in Europe as well as in North and South America.
