Autonomic software and systems
Different degrees of autonomy are pervasive in modern ICT systems. The driver towards more autonomy is the need to handle the complexity of the systems while at the same time increase the quality (efficiency, safety, etc) of the resulting system. For example the promise of autonomous vehicles is to increase service levels for customers, while at the same time decreasing the overall carbon footprint of traffic.
In this course we will study the principles of autonomy for ICT systems using the Mape-K reference architecture. We will present a comprehensive framework for the design of autonomic systems irrespective of their levels of autonomy and application areas.
The course consists of lectures, exercises and a project. The project is either a research project reported in writing, or a programming project using the carla.org simulator. You will need to give a presentation based on the project.
There is no exam on this course. One exercise might require attendance.
