Dr. Jérémie Guiochet is an associate professor in University of Toulouse. His research activities take place at LAAS-CNRS. He received an Engineer degree in electronics and computer sciences at ENSEIRB, and a Ph.D. in 2003 from the INSA, Toulouse, France. He provides courses in Computer Science, Industrial Computing, Dependabilty and Risk Management. His research work is conducted in the LAAS-CNRS in the dependable computing and fault tolerance group (TSF) and relates to safety assessment, fault removal and tolerance in safety critical autonomous systems.
Risk analysis and safety argumentation for autonomous systems
We investigate which system behavior models and human-system interaction models are appropriate for early risk analysis of autonomously-adapting systems (mostly robotics system). We particularly focus on modeling languages like UML associated with risk analysis methods.
See HAZOP-UML page.
We also also investigate how uncertainties could be modeled and managed in a develomment process or an safety argumentation (safety case), integrating formal probabilistic models as Markov and Bayesian networks, or belief theory.
Defenses and tests for autonomous systems
The counterpart of autonomous adaptation is the confidence that can be placed on the underlying mechanisms. In particular:
a) what defenses can be provided as countermeasures against the threats introduced by autonomous adaptation? Our research on this theme focus on the safety of autonomous robot systems based on the use of safety monitors.
See SMOF page.
b) how to perform tests of autonomous systems, considering the infinate entry set, and that running hazardous scenarios is not possible ? We develop a method based on testing autonomous system in virtual words.
Geo-Privacy risk analysis
Specific methods and risk criteria should be developped to analyse risks in the geoprivacy domain. We particularly focus on methods for integrating quantitative estimation (coming from provable security) to qualitative analysis.
