AIDOaRt is a 3 years long H2020-ECSEL European project involving 32 organizations, grouped in clusters from 7 different countries, focusing on AI-augmented automation supporting modeling, coding, testing, monitoring, and continuous development in Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS).

The overall idea of AIDOaRT is to efficiently support requirements, monitoring, modelling, coding, and testing activities during the software development process. AIDOaRT can be used as a platform to extend existing tools. To this intent, the project proposes the use of Model-Driven Engineering (MDE) principles and techniques to provide a model-based framework offering proper methods and related tooling.

The projects’ framework will enable the observation and analysis of collected data from both runtime and design time to provide dedicated AI-augmented solutions that will then be validated in concrete industrial cases involving complex CPSs.

Many leading companies have started visualising the automation of tomorrow to be brought about by full-blown Artificial Intelligence tech. While the number of companies that invest significant resources in software development is constantly increasing, the use of AI in the development and design techniques are still immature.

The global AIDOaRT infrastructure will work with existing data sources, including traditional IT monitoring, log events, application and more. The infrastructure is intended to work within the DevOps practices combining software development and information technology operations.

The 3-year project points at using AIOps to automate decision and process and complete system development tasks. AI technological innovations have to ensure that systems are designed responsibly contributes to our trust in their behaviour, and requires both accountabilities, meaning being able to explain and justify decisions, and explainability, understanding internal mechanics can be trusted and easily understood by humans.
