Certification of machine learning for safety critical applications:
probable, plausible or impractical?

Artificial Intelligence based applications have offered unthinkable progress in many areas and have invaded transport systems like aircraft, cars, rail, and all critical embedded systems. While the performance gains and huge opportunities offered by machine learning are enticing, their embedding is impeded by their seemingly unpredictable nature, which is incompatible with safety critical environments and certification. Indeed, the design of safety critical systems requires demonstrations able to argument for the dependability of the results of such complex algorithms. Still, a number of initiatives and working groups are focusing on defining and determining the means for manufacturers to fulfill certification expectations despite the complex and uncontrolled internal behaviors of machine learning.

Special FOCUS SESSION
BUILDING THE FUTURE TODAY : a certification path for Hyperloop technology
Mohamed Kaâniche, LAAS - France
Benjamin Pasquier, RAMS Engineering director, Virgin Hyperloop One
Jean Louis Boulanger, assessor Leader, Certifier
In the process of building the world’s first hyperloop system, Virgin Hyperloop One (VHO) is creating a disruption in the transportation industry. We see the rise of a new mode - travel in low pressure tubes under electromagnetic propulsion and levitation at speeds close to 1000 km/h – at the same time the regulatory framework is developing for the technology.
Together, VHO and Certifer will outline the process and challenges for transitioning a company from a start-up with ground-breaking technology to a mature transportation company capable to deliver a certified first deployment in a matter of years.

CHALLENGES FOR ROBOTICS AND AUTONOMOUS SYSTEM WITH HUMAIN INTERACTION: A MULTI DOMAIN PERSPECTIVE

The aim of this panel is to raise awareness and to foster discussions around the notions of Automation and User Interaction and their interplay in the design, development, evaluation and deployment of interactive systems.The panel will bring diverse (potentially conflicting) perspectives on User Interaction in a world that embeds increasing automation. While early approaches in automation were focusing on allocating basic functions to the best player (e.g. Fitts’ approach Machine Are Better At – Men Are Better At), this panel focuses on the combined use of the concepts of automation within interactive systems development. Current push in automation is towards fully autonomous systems (such as google cars) raising critical issues such as: how to make it possible to users to foresee future states of the automation, how to disengage automation or how to make sure that users are able to take over when automation fails …. When higher automation levels are considered, users’ activity gets closer to supervision, which is a different interaction paradigm deeply impacting user interaction. In domains such as medical care and transportation, safety is at stake.
