Conference Paper
Full-text available
Artificial Intelligence (AI) has provided a lot of advances in new technologies, which motivated funding but also criticism regarding how AI systems may threaten us. Although many definitions have been given to intelligence, no clear definition is globally shared yet, especially for the field of AI. A lack which can lead to failure to agree on what...
Thesis
Full-text available
Requirements Engineering (RE) revolves around requirements, from their discovery to their satisfaction, passing through their formalisation, modification, and traceability with other project artefacts, like preliminary interviews or resulting source codes. Although it is clear for many that involving knowledgeable people is an important aspect of m...
Article

In order to find experts, different approaches build rankings of people, assuming that they are ranked by level of expertise, and use typical Information Retrieval (IR) measures to evaluate their effectiveness. However, we figured out that expert rankings (i) tend to be partially ordered, (ii) incomplete, and (iii) consequently provide more an orde...
Article
Full-text available
We are designing an automated technique to find and recommend experts for helping in Requirements Engineering tasks, which can be done by ranking the available people by level of expertise. For evaluating the correctness of the rankings produced by the automated technique, we want to compare them to a gold standard. In this work, we ask external pe...

Expert Finding (EF) techniques help in discovering people having relevant knowledge and skills. But for their validation, EF techniques usually rely on experts, meaning using another EF technique, generally not properly validated, and exploit them mainly for output validations, meaning only at late stages. We propose a model, which builds on litera...
Conference Paper
jMetal, an open source, Java-based framework for multi-objective optimization with metaheuristics, has become a valuable tool for many researches in the area as well as for some industrial partners in the last ten years. Our experience using and maintaining it during that time, as well as the received comments and suggestions, have helped us improv...
Article
Large, distributed software development projects, like Open Source Software (OSS), adopt different collaborative working tools, including online forums and mailing list discussions that are valuable source of knowledge for requirements engineering tasks in software evolution, such as model revision and evolution. In our research, we aim at providin...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Expert finding aims at identifying knowledgeable people to help in decision processes, such as eliciting or analysing requirements in Requirements Engineering. Complementary approaches exist to tackle specific contexts like in forum-based communities, exploiting personal contributions, or in structured organisations like companies, where the social...
Article
Full-text available
Large, distributed software development projects rely on the collaboration of culturally heterogeneous and geographically distributed stakeholders. Software requirements, as well as solution ideas are elicited in distributed processes, which increasingly use online forums and mailing lists, in which stakeholders mainly use free or semi-structured n...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Goal-oriented approaches in requirements engineering aim at under-standing stakeholders' needs, modelling the intentions, dependencies and expec-tation to be met by a system-to-be, or by a new release of an existing system in a software evolution process. In the context of software evolution, we consider user feedback, as commonly available in user...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Understanding complex organisations in terms of their stakeholders’ goals, intentions and resources, is a necessary condition for the design of present day socio-technical systems. Goal-oriented approaches in requirements engineering provide concepts and techniques to support this analysis. A variety of goal-oriented modelling methods are available...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A variety of methods and techniques for requirements elicitation and analysis have been proposed, in response to the diverse needs posed by the different types of information that have to be managed in designing complex software systems. Experience from real projects gives evidence that often these techniques are combined within a project, but whic...

Similarly to intelligence theories in the human science (e.g. psychometric, physiological, social), the objective is to draw a theory of intelligence applicable to software agents. Such a theory should be a specialisation of more general intelligence theories entailing human as well as artificial intelligence. The restriction to software agents is a focus on purely informational artefacts, as opposed to robotics which involves also hardware elements. Consequently, a software intelligence should be hardware-agnostic and focus on functional aspects, whether they apply to physical robots, web services, standalone applications, or any other kind of software.

Without having a commonly agreed definition of (artificial) intelligence, we have a high probability to disagree on what would be the proper requirements to design one. As such, we focus on establishing such a definition, trying to cover what has already been done so far.
