EU funding in the millions to help solve fundamental problems in the interaction of hardware and software

Many safety-critical areas of our lives are being controlled by computer systems: from airbag controls in cars and landing gear on airplanes to essential infrastructure such as energy supply and telecommunications. But are these systems reliable? Computer science professor Jan Reineke of Saarland University thinks not – because a crucial component of today’s computer systems renders the development of safe and secure IT applications impossible at a fundamental level. To change this and [...]
