WASP is very proud to have so many excellent researchers involved in the program. More than 450 researchers, reaching from assistant to senior professors, are affiliated with WASP. Some are international recruitments who have come to Sweden to join the WASP community, others are already well established in the Swedish academic system.
Through a series of portraits, you get the opportunity to get to know them a little bit better.
Meet Jan Bosch
Jan Bosch is a Professor at Chalmers University of Technology and the Director of the Software Center, a strategic partner-funded collaboration between 17 large European companies (e.g., Ericsson, Volvo Cars, Volvo Trucks, Saab Defense, Scania, Siemens and Bosch) and five Swedish universities, focused on digitalization. Professor Bosch joined WASP in 2015.
What is your position/role in WASP?
Earlier I was theme leader of the software engineering theme; Also, I was WASP PhD student supervisor for David Issa Mattos and I am currently advisor for WASP PhD student Teodor Fredriksson.
Why did you choose to join WASP?
It is the largest and most encompassing research initiative ever in Sweden. Of course I want to be part of that!
What are the benefits you see in WASP?
Great network of researchers and companies and an amazing experience for PhD candidates. I wish I would have had access to this during my doctoral studies.
Briefly describe your research topic.
Software engineering, but during recent years I have started to work more on AI Engineering, i.e., the engineering solutions required to successfully deploy ML/DL models in industrial production settings. Our work on experimentation, A/B testing, multi-armed bandits and reinforcement learning in industrial settings is, in my view, quite relevant and timely.
I post a weekly blog entry on my LinkedIn profile (https://www.linkedin.com/in/janbosch/) as well as on my personal website (see link below).
In what way can your research be of importance to our society in the future?
Software and ML/DL models are critical for a modern society. Ensuring the benefits provided by digital technologies and keeping our industry in the forefront is critical to protect and expand our leading position.
