IEEE-CS Meeting of the Month


Testing Software where Cause is De-coupled from Effect

Presented by George Hurlburt

Tuesday August 25, 2015

Time: 6:30 PM – Networking and Pizza; 7:00 – 8:00 PM – Program

There is no cost to attend at McLean, Silver Spring

Software, when deeply embedded among systems, often behaves as a complex adaptive system. This is true in a system of systems or a network of networks environment characterized by modern, software-dominant defense capabilities. It will also be true as the Internet of Anything takes hold. In such instances, traditional white or black box testing, as well as modeling and simulation, all fall short of validating all potential outcomes. Rather, massive path traversal where edges convey meaning offers a potential software testing solution which is achievable when telemetry data is abundant.

George Hurlburt, a frequent contributor to IEEE journals, is currently engaged in developing a Masters Program in “Dynamic Networks” for the University College of the University of Maryland (UMUC) and working through the United Nations and other groups concerned with big data analytics to speed Ebola response and recovery in West Africa.

Welcome to IEEE

We are looking forward to engaging the IEEE W-DC/N.VA computer society chapter membership. We are teaming with ASQ, ISSA-NOVA, DC SPIN, and other IEEE chapters and societies to reach more members at monthly meetings. We are reaching out to local colleges and universities,  INCOSE and IASA, and to Baltimore, West Virginia and Central Pennsylvania. We enjoy a technically diverse and deep set of interests that overlap with the interests of many applications areas. We appreciate feedback and will be acting on ideas we receive.

All IEEE-CS members are invited to attend partnering organization 2013 events, per links below.
