Abstract: ML-based systems are different to traditional software systems in many respects. These differences have triggered the need for customized solutions in various disciplines, such as software architecture and testing. This keynote explores to what extent requirements engineering is also affected when the system under specification is an ML-based system. Special attention will be given to the scope of requirements, the types of non-functional requirements that emerge, and the roles involved in this context. The keynote will revise the current state of the art and provide future directions for the discipline. 

Speaker: Xavier Franch
