Software Engineering & Security of Information Systems
Research and Development Objectives
The aim of research is the development of methods and tools for the creation of intelligent IT solutions, applicable in everyday life, supported by the concepts of a smart city, intelligent society and Internet of Things, using advanced software engineering. By combining the achievements of modern software engineering and artificial intelligence, we can achieve higher quality, performance and usefulness of created information systems in practical applications, while providing security and protection of data stored and transmitted within local and distributed information systems, Internet and mobile applications and data processed in the cloud and Internet of Things systems. The detailed tasks include the development of methods in: software engineering, optimization, metaheuristics, security of data and systems, analysis, processing and extraction of information, the application of machine learning methods, artificial intelligence in planning supplies.
Scientific research conducted in the team includes the following issues: • Methodologies of software development, with particular emphasis on the analysis and design of information systems. • Research and quality analysis in the process of software development. • Application of metaheuristics to solve the problem of supply planning. Examination of efficiency and effectiveness of algorithms taking into account various constraints applied in real enterprises. • Ensuring the security and protection of data stored and transmitted within local and distributed information systems, internet and mobile applications as well as data processed in the cloud and Internet of Things systems. • Natural language text processing and extraction of information and associated intelligent management of data, resource and information. Modeling the field and creating a domain language. • Construction of models and algorithms for efficient intelligent systems and knowledge base systems with the use of selected machine learning algorithms. • Research on the use of blockchain technology in administration, management and e-elections, through the development of technologies in these areas and the expansion of democratic processes with the use of software that uses blockchain technology. • Application of blockchain technology to solve important social and public problems, including a solution to reduce the cost of conducting elections, ensuring the integrity of data transmission through the network. • Security methods in VANET vehicle networks (Vehicular Ad-Hoc Network) with the use of Internet of Things concept. • Research on the creation of effective system for the recognition of user's presence in a vehicle or in other object of the city infrastructure, among others by the use of Be in / be out model in the Internet of Things environment • Intelligent system of automation and analysis of security procedures.
Impact of research results on society and the economy
There is a close relationship between the research and development activities conducted within the Team with economy, transport, public administration and health protection through the development of methods and tools for creating intelligent IT solutions applicable in everyday life, supported by the concepts of smart city, intelligent society and the Internet of Things , with the use of advanced software engineering.
