Conference:Formal Verification 2017
Speaker:Rod Chapman, (Principal Engineer) Altran UK
Presentation Title:Are we there yet? Twenty years of formal verification in critical software…
Abstract:This talk reflects on twenty years of applying formal verification in the development of critical software systems, from early projects such as the Typhoon aircraft and the SHOLIS system, to more recent efforts including the NATS iFACTS system. We’ll reflect on what “Formal” really means in the context of software development, what’s holding back wider adoption, and some encouraging signs for the future.

  • Formal for software really can work
  • Every software project uses at least one formal language.
  • Disappearing formal methods are all around you.
