Welcome to the Resilient Computing Lab (RCL)

RCL is a research group of the Department of Mathematics and Informatics (DiMaI, "Dipartimento di Matermatica e Informatica") of the University of Florence. RCL research activities focus mainly in research and experimentation of dependable and secure systems, infrastructures and systems of systems. RCL is currently involved in research spanning the following areas:

  • Design and experimentation of architectures and techniques for resilient, safety-critical and secure systems;
  • Quantitative evaluation of dependability, security and Quality of Service through analytical, simulative and experimental techniques;
  • Applications of Machine Learning Techniques (especially Anomaly Detection) in the domain of Critical Systems.

Details on where we are, who we are, and our projects are available on this website.

For further information, please contact prof. Andrea Bondavalli.

Dipartimento di Matematica e Informatica "Ulisse Dini"

Titolo del progetto di ricerca: "SafeAI: Integrazione di Intelligenza Artificiale nei sistemi critici per la sicurezza"

Sintesi del progetto di ricerca:

Studio di soluzioni per una Intelligenza Artificiale (IA) sicura (safe), studiando e applicando un modello concettuale, una guida architetturale e una metodologia di progettazione e assessment. Il progetto si propone di i) analizzare sistemi basati su IA studiando le nuove superfici di guasto e attacco offerte da DNN (Deep Neural Network) e GPGPU (General Purpose GPU), ii) definire possibili contromisure sia interne, ovvero definendo meccanismi appropriati per proteggere la DNN e GPGPU da guasti e attacchi, sia a livello di sistema, ovvero garantendo che guasti o attacchi non si propaghino all’esterno del componente, iii) valutare sperimentalmente le soluzioni ottenute.

The POR-CREO FESR 2014-2020 SPaCe project recently started!

The Smart passenger Center project researches multimedial solutions to orchestrate surveillance and mobility services. It relies on Artificial Intelligence (AI) to equip operators and transportation authority with instruments for the management of the dynamics of passengers flow.

Within SPaCe, the Resilient Computing Lab will research solutions for the design and evaluation of dependable and secure systems that include intelligent components.
