About the workshop
This workshop will bring together researchers from formal methods,
automated reasoning and AI; it will address the issue of how AI can
be used to support the formal software development process, including
requirement analysis, modelling and proof. Previous AI4FM workshops
have included a mix of industrial and academic participants and we
anticipate attracting a similarly diverse audience.

Rigorous software development using formal methods allows the construction
of an accurate characterisation of a problem domain that is firmly based
on mathematics; by applying standard mathematical analyses, these methods
can be used to prove that systems satisfy formal specifications. Research
has shown that with tools backed by mature theory, formal methods are
becoming cost effective and their use is easier to justify, not as an
academic exercise, legal requirement or niche markets -- but as part of
a business case. However, while industrial use of formal methods is
increasing, in order to make it more mainstream, the cost of applying
formal methods, in terms of mathematical skill level and development
time, must still be reduced. A desirable outcome of the workshop is to
identify key areas where AI can help with such issues as well as
discussions about how it can be utilised.
