DAUSY Seminar by Prof. Valeriy Vyatkin

Date: November 28 – 29, 2023
Time: 3:00 PM – 5:30 PM (Both Days)
Location: Virtually on MS Teams

Seminar Highlights

Part 1: Distributed Component-Based Design of Industrial Automation Software
In this session, we delve into the motivations behind the transition from monolithic PLC (Programmable Logic Controller) systems to decentralized logic in industrial automation. We will also present the significant progress made in this area over the last decade. Learn about the future of industrial automation design.

Part 2: Formal Methods for Designing and Validating Safety-Critical Automation Systems
This segment explores formal methods and supporting tools used to perform automatic verification of safety-critical automation systems. With a focus on the closed-loop approach, we’ll discuss how these methods best suit cyber-physical systems, ensuring safety and reliability.

About the Speaker

Valeriy Vyatkin (IEEE Fellow)) is Chaired Professor of Dependable Computations and Communications at LuleƄ University of Technology on joint appointment as full professor of IT in Industrial Automation at Aalto University. Previously he has been with Cambridge University, U.K., as a visiting scholar, and on permanent academic appointments with The University of Auckland, New Zealand, Martin Luther University of Halle-Wittenberg, Germany, and with Taganrog State University of Radio Engineering (TSURE), Russia, and postdoc at Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan. He received the Candidate of Science (Ph.D.) degree in applied computer science from TSURE, in 1992, Dr. Eng. degree in electrical engineering from Nagoya Institute of Technology, Japan in 1999, Dr. Sc. (Eng.) degree in information and control systems in 1999 from TSURE, and Habilitation degree from the Ministry of Science and Technology of Sachsen-Anhalt, Germany in 2002. His research is on applied artificial intelligence in industrial automation with emphasis on: swarm intelligence for decentralised decision making in industrial cyber-physical systems; multi-agent software architectures enabling industrial applications of swarms; AI-assisted system and software engineering; autonomy enabled by declarative knowledge modelling, neural networks, reasoning; industrial systems flexibility and reconfigurability enabled by real-time reasoning and logical inference. The application areas motivating the research include smart energy, oil production, automated material handling, building management systems, data centres, industrial robotics and reconfigurable manufacturing He has been a co-PI of many European and national research projects. He serves as Vice-president on Technical Activities of the IEEE Industrial Electronics Society since 2022 and Associate Editor of IEEE journals: IEEE Transactions on Industrial Informatics, IEEE Transactions on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems, IEEE Open Journal of Industrial Electronics Society, IEEE Journal on Emerging Topics in Industrial Electronics. In 2012 he was awarded Andrew P. Sage best IEEE Transactions Paper Award.
