Distinguished Lecturer Webinar Series
(IN MANDARIN) Environment Modeling-based Requirements Engineering
15 April 2021–2:00 am ET
Professor of Computer Science and the deputy director of Key Lab of High Confidence Software Technologies (MoE) at Peking University
This talk will introduce a systematic approach to identifying and modeling the requirements of software intensive systems from well-modeled environment simulation. In addition, it will provide a new view of software capability, i.e. effect-based software capability in terms of environment modeling. The ontologies for modeling software-intensive systems are described and the guidelines are provided for, showing how to conduct the identification of the functional and non-functional requirements based on the properties of the software’s surroundings. It will give system analysts and requirements engineers insight into how to recognize and structure problems in developing software-intensive systems.
Using Cyber-physical Technology for Speech-Language Therapy
19 April 2021–11:00 am ET
Full professor/ Cathedraticus and Chair of the Industrial Engineering Department of the Engineering School at University of Costa Rica
This research is centered on social robotics and is motivated on the understanding of human-robot interaction for the improvement of the quality of life, especially in the field of the familiar daily life and employability of those who typically suffer exclusion. More specifically, this research presents the development of a new archetype based system framework that, in this case, allows for the evidence about how humanoid technology and the use of virtualization can be integrated for speech-language therapeutic purposes.
We present the proposal of the archetype based system using a “kansei engineering” approach which defines the orientation of the requirements engineering design. In addition, we present a qualitative validation from the point of view of a speech-language therapeutic expert and the experience of a male and female patient.
We conclude that cyber-physical smart systems, when robots and applications for mobile devices are integrated, must be based on critical variables of evaluation of the therapeutic impact and not only on technical functionalities related with hardware and software. The theoretical framework is essential and a multi-disciplinary approach with health professionals specialized in specific therapy is absolutely necessary. Also, this is an innovative way to assist speech-language therapeutic professionals taking into account that robotics applications in virtual worlds interconnected with the “physical world” under a cyber-physical concept are not frequently used.
