The significance of the Doctoral degree has changed considerably over the last decades and Doctorates were possible for only a rare few. After the graduation the majority of new Doctors continued their scientific work within academia. Nowadays technology experts are needed in all spheres of society: in academic...
  • Research areas represented are security, mobile and semantic computing, Industrial Internet, information retrieval and enterprise system development. The goal of Cloud-assisted Security Services (CloSer) is to show how we can build effective cloud-assisted security services for organizations and individuals by designing novel security, privacy and data analytics techniques. The project is a continuation of the 2-year "CloSe" project funded jointly by the Academy of Finland and Tekes during 2014...
  • The study utilises model checking to address the insufficiencies of testing and simulation in the verification of safety systems. Model checking as a process. The object of Jussi Lahtinen’s dissertation was to find a more formal and mathematical approach to system verification and to develop model checking practices that are suitable for the nuclear industry. The traditional system verification methods, such as testing and simulation, do not have enough coverage to address the increasing...
