Software Engineering: Artificial Intelligence, Compliance, and Security


Series: Computer Science, Technology and Applications
BISAC: COM051230

Information security is important in every aspect of daily life. This book examines four areas where risks are present: artificial intelligence (AI), the internet of things (IoT), government and malware. The authors channel their experience and research into an accessible body of knowledge for consideration by professionals.

AI is introduced as a tool for healthcare, security and innovation. The advantages of using AI in new industries are highlighted in the context of recent developments in mechanical engineering, and a survey of AI software risks is presented focusing on well-publicized failures and US FDA regulatory guidelines.

The risks associated with the billions of devices that form the IoT grow with the availability of such devices in consumer products, healthcare, energy infrastructure and transportation. The risks, software engineering risk mitigation methods and standards promoting a level of care for the manufacture of IoT devices are examined because of their importance for software developers.

Strategic insights for software developers looking to do business with the US federal government are presented, considering threats to both public and private sectors as well as governmental priorities from recent executive and legislative branch actions.

Finally, an analysis of malicious software that infects numerous computer systems each day and causes millions of dollars in damages every year is presented. Malicious software, or “malware,” is software designed with hostile intent, but the damage may be mitigated with static and dynamic analyses, which are processes for studying how malware operates and analyzing potential impacts.
