Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science that focuses on developing algorithms and models that enable machines to learn from data, reason, and simulate human-like behaviors. With its potential to augment human capabilities, AI has the power to tackle complex challenges and thus revolutionize industries. Hence, it has become more common in recent software systems that incorporate AI techniques and algorithms such as machine learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and so on to perform their respective intelligent tasks.
While AI offers numerous benefits for software systems, there are also several important issues and challenges that need to be addressed. For example, AI models can inherit biases present in the training data, leading to unfair outcomes. Thus, High-quality data are crucial for training reliable models. Also, the large reliance on user data can raise concerns about data privacy and security. Finally, the absence of standardized evaluation metrics and benchmarks for AI systems makes it challenging to compare and assess their performance accurately.
In this workshop, we will explore the integration of cutting-edge AI techniques and algorithms to enhance the efficiency, effectiveness, and adaptability of software development, maintenance, and operations. Additionally, we will look into the challenges and issues associated with applying AI methodologies to software systems. Our ultimate goal is to create more intelligent and autonomous software systems with optimized performance and reliability.
