Main Conference Day Two

9:15 am - 10:45 am WORKSHOP: How to prove that your C/C++ code is safe and secure

Key Points: Static Code Analysis, Safety & Security, Functional Safety, Cybersecurity

Are you afraid of finding critical coding bugs too late? Would you like to have evidence that your code either self-written or not is free from overflow, divide-by-zero, out-of-bounds array access, and other run-time errors before you use it in safety and security critical systems? Do you need to comply with safety and security standards or guidelines like MISRA, SEI CERT-C, ISO/IEC TS 17961?

In this presentation, I demonstrate sophisticated static analysis methods that verify and prove the absence of run-time errors and vulnerabilities in the source code at the unit and integration level. Utilizing formal methods (with sound implementation) that consider all potential inputs, controls, and data flows without code execution, organizations will gain confidence that the software they rely on is safe and secure. This gives organizations more than an early error detection tool, it reduces testing and verification costs, and makes code quality transparent across the entire team.

12:35 pm - 1:15 pm Assessing the Risk of Falls in Older Adults with Inertial Sensors and Machine Learning

o Falls are a common, complex and costly global problem affecting 1 in 3 older adults every year and costing €25Bn in the EU each year.
o Falls can be prevented through early and targeted intervention. Kinesis Health Technologies has developed an inertial sensor based machine learning system that can more accurately identify risk of falls, reducing costs and promoting early intervention and prevention.
o Explore implementation of signal processing and machine learning algorithms using wearable sensor data and deploying and testing on production systems

2:55 pm - 3:35 pm Enhancing Product Quality by Deep Analysis of Field Feedback

        Understand the value of your post-release data for enhancing product quality
        See practical examples of approaches to post-release data (deep) analysis
        Learn how to ‘close the loop’ between post-release failure data and software/product design to continuously enhance device quality
Jan Van Moll, Director of Quality and Regulatory at Philips

Jan Van Moll

Director of Quality and Regulatory

• Examine what challenges machine learning poses for the Medical Devices Regulation, In Vitro Diagnostic
 Medical Device Regulation, and associated harmonised standards
 • Consider that a subset of machine learning models are ‘black boxes’ and that the current medical device
 framework does not adequately address interpretability in terms of clinical evidence and risk assessment
 • Recognise that a subset of machine learning models are ‘adaptive’ and that fully adaptive devices that retrain
 constantly are a poor fit with current change management processes - some creativity to remain compliant will
 be required
