Chapter
The rising demand for adaptive, cloud-based and AI-based systems is calling for an upgrade of the associated dependability concepts. That demands instantiation of dependability-orientated processes and methods to cover the whole life cycle. However, a common solution is not in sight yet That is especially evident for continuously learning AI and/or...
