Roundtable discussions

SC2 is the leading software engineering conference in Europe for sharing best practices in the crucial and strategic discipline of complex software development. Through an inspiring programme of structured and informal networking figureheads from industry and academia exchange knowledge, ideas and experiences on how to improve their time-to-market and time-to-value.

In two lunch sessions behind closed doors a select few will discuss a hot topic in managing software development. This year’s topics are ‘Benefits and burdens of multidisciplinary Agile’ and ‘Opportunities and threats of machine learning’.

Roundtable 1

12:30 – 14:00

Benefits and burdens of multidisciplinary Agile

The freedom and flexibility offered by Agile seems to be at odds with some of the standing practices within high tech software development. How to keep the overall system documentation up to date? How to deal with system architecture? How to align with parallel hardware development? In this roundtable practitioners and seasoned experts discuss the benefits and burdens of Agile in a multidisciplinary environment.

Roundtable 2

12:30 – 14:00

Opportunities and threats of machine learning

Machine learning is booming. In chess and even Go the human champion has already been defeated by artificial intelligence. Autonomous cars and robots are increasingly driven by machine learning software. What more has AI in store for the high tech industry? What are the risks? In this roundtable experts from science and industry discuss whether machine learning is a challenge or a threat.
