Research Review 2022

Nov 14–16 | Virtual Event

Forging the Path

At the 2022 CMU SEI Research Review, our researchers detailed how they are forging a new path for software engineering by executing the SEI’s technical strategy to deliver tangible results. They highlighted methods, prototypes, and tools aimed at the most important problems facing the DoD, industry, and academia, including AI engineering, computing at the tactical edge, threat hunting, continuous integration/continuous delivery, and machine learning trustworthiness. Learn how our researchers' work in areas such as model-based systems engineering, DevSecOps, automated design conformance, software/cyber/AI integration, and AI network defense—to name a few—has produced value for the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and advanced the state of the practice.

This year the Research Review event was held virtually over three days. To learn more, read about the projects, watch the videos, or download the slides.

About the CMU SEI Research Review

SEI researchers will provide in-depth discussions of a selection of recent, high-impact, DoD-line-funded research that improves the state of the art and practice in software, cybersecurity, and artificial intelligence (AI) engineering. Each talk will present tools, techniques, and processes produced through collaboration and designed to address the four big software challenges for national defense and security: capability, timeliness, affordability, and trustworthiness. You will hear about the positive impact of those technologies on the DoD mission.


Our military and civilian government work to deter war and protect our nation’s security. Their capabilities increasingly rely on software, as do those of our adversaries. Better-built and better-secured software will maintain our advantage. At the Carnegie Mellon University Software Engineering Institute (CMU SEI), we question assumptions, collaborate broadly, collect evidence, architect new ways, measure progress, and automate solutions to improve software development, use, and security. We have done this since the U.S. Department of Defense established us at CMU, an elite research university, as a federally funded research and development center focused on software engineering and cybersecurity.
