Schoitsch Erwin

Smart Systems are today’s drivers of innovation, in all industrial and social areas highly automated, intelligent systems are taking over tasks, services – and maybe one day, control of our lives. The keynote will address critical incidents in several areas – medical devices, industrial plants, autonomous vehicles, smart infrastructures, privacy, (big) data, malicious security breaches and attacks, demonstrating the limitations of too excessive use of not very trustable, uncertified systems, developed rather for functionality and neglecting too much safety, security and resilience and their interplay. The paper provides an overview on methods and standardization efforts towards achievement of trustworthy systems and systems of systems, addresses societal impacts and market disruptions respectively new market opportunities, not to forget sustainability as property. Large European projects and smaller Support Actions are introduced which proposed recommendations, roadmaps and guidance, and results, how to meet the challenges – from the technical as well the economic and societal viewpoint.e
