Since the establishment in 2004 as a policy implementation organization under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI), IPA has been actively engaged in activities intended to play an integral part in the execution of various IT initiatives. In recent years, the way our society interacts with IT is undergoing a significant change, due to the rapid diffusion of big data and emergence of AI, along with the advancement in IoT. At IPA, we are aiming at overcoming the challenges that need to be addressed to ensure the realization of a highly safe and convenient society, based on our insights on IT society today and its future. Specifically, we are taking a threefold approach consisting of the efforts to "strengthen information security", "nurture human resources deeply knowledgeable about IT" and "promote the development of highly reliable systems". In this session, some of the above initiatives will be described.
Systematic Approach toward Dependable System Development
Takaaki Matsumoto, Information-technology Promotion Agency (IPA), Japan
Takaaki Matsumoto is the president of Software Reliability Enhancement Center at IPA. Before joining IPA, he had been engaged in the research and development of operating systems, information security and computer architecture at NTT and NTT Data Corporation.
