An increasingly important challenge for modern software systems is to provide uninterrupted and optimal service even in the presence of faults, changing environmental conditions, and attacks. To address this challenge, we need new ways to build systems that take more control over their own dependability, security, and usefulness – automating many of the tasks that today require computing experts and administrator to manage. This emerging requirement has led to a new subfield of software engineering and systems design, termed Autonomic Computing, Self-healing Systems, or Self-adaptive Systems. In this talk I describe this emerging field and recent advances that allow software developers to address fundamental engineering challenges, including techniques to (a) support self-healing through architectural models and automated repair, (b) synthesize optimal adaptation strategies in the presence of uncertainty, (c) support self-securing systems, and (d) reason about human-in-the loop systems.


David Garlan is a Professor of Computer Science in the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University.    His research interests include software architecture, self-adaptive systems, formal methods, and cyber-physical systems.  He is recognized as one of the founders of the field of software architecture, and, in particular, formal representation and analysis of architectural designs. He is a co-author of two books on software architecture: "Software Architecture: Perspectives on an Emerging Discipline", and "Documenting Software Architecture: Views and Beyond." In 2005 he received a Stevens Award Citation for “fundamental contributions to the development and understanding of software architecture as a discipline in software engineering.” In 2011 he received the Outstanding Research award from ACM SIGSOFT for “significant and lasting software engineering research contributions through the development and promotion of software architecture.” In 2016 he received the Allen Newell Award for Research Excellence, and the 2017 IEEE TCSE Distinguished Education Award. He is a Fellow of both the IEEE and the ACM.
