First scientific results published by the UMA
The NEO research group, participating in the fiQare project together with the companies Emergya, Secmotic and TIGA, has begun producing the first results of the project, which will be disseminated at the Spanish JISBD 2018 congress held in Seville.
In this first study, a part of the fiQare approach is made public. In particular it is an analysis of the 26 Generic Enablers (base of the operation of this open platform) to identify their weak points. The objective is to study the reliability and security sections of this software. The conclusions allow us to better understand the source code that many companies and entities are already using in Europe and the rest of the world to implement services in smart cities and other applications.
The approach of the fiQare project is unique because it is automatic, quantitative, and exhaustive according to the ISO 25010 standard. In addition to detecting the weak points, the project aims to correct them, and to demonstrate that an increase in global quality is possible (benefits, scalability, maintainability, extensibility, ...) with this work methodology. The intention of the NEO group is also to imbue artificial intelligence (AI) in this automatic analysis, which will allow in the short term to give a very useful service to the developers and an important tranquility to the users and cities that use Fiware with respect to the global check-up to which this ubiquitous software has been submitted.
The University of Málaga (NEO Group) carries out numerous collaborations in smart cities and advanced AI systems, with other approaches and with an international impact thanks to this business project that Secmotic, TIGA y Emergya lead in Europe.
