The research programme will see an exploration of the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and natural language processing (NLP) in process automation, in order to simplify and standardise requirements analysis.
The research will range from reconciling requirement models, to deriving system acceptance criteria from requirements.
The research is to take place at the University of Luxembourg.
Lionel Briand, vice director of SnT, said: “Together with our partners, we will work at the cutting edge of new technology to introduce automation to the requirements engineering process, reducing incompleteness, inconsistency, and ambiguity to a minimum and facilitating the analysis of system compliance.”
Philippe Seyll, co-CEO of Clearstream Banking, commented: “As a Luxembourg-based company, for us, this research partnership, with the University of Luxembourg’s SnT, is the ideal way to combine business knowhow and scientific research capabilities to investigate how new technologies, such as AI and NLP, can help move our industry forward.”
Benoit Cardinael, escent co-founder, said: “This research partnership provides us with the unique opportunity to leverage our field expertise of current requirements engineering practices to steer research towards the highest adding value areas. We are thrilled to be associated with this initiative.”
