Exactpro Researcher on Testing Approaches for Intelligence Market Surveillance Systems at SYRCoSE 2017

On 6 June, Exactpro Researcher, Olga Moskaleva, gave a talk on “Creating Test Data for Market Surveillance Systems with Embedded Machine Learning Algorithms” at the Spring/Summer Young Researchers’ Colloquium on Software Engineering

Surveillance systems are intended to detect market abuse behavior and prevent it. Their importance has soared since the latest financial crisis. Due to factors like increasingly complex regulatory requirements, fast-growing trading speeds, volumes and tools, surveillance systems need to constantly catch up in their sophistication and reliability.

The study conducted by Olga Moskaleva under the mentorship of Anna Gromova - PhD, Technical Science, Researcher, Exactpro - focuses on introducing intelligent analysis of complex procedures into the new type of market surveillance systems with embedded machine learning algorithms.

“During the conference, we met our counterparts from different universities and companies and received feedback on our research. Our ambitions include developing an automatic tool for test data generation and returning next year with updated results”, says Olga Moskaleva, Exactpro Researcher.

“As the technological landscape changes rapidly, it is vital for an IT company to participate in research conferences and follow the latest trends in software development and testing”, says Anna Gromova, Exactpro Researcher.

SYRCoSE stands for The Spring/Summer Young Researchers’ Colloquium on Software Engineering. It was first organized in 2007 by Prof. Alexander K. Petrenko (The Institute for System Programming of RAS, Russia) and Prof. Andrey N. Terekhov (Saint-Petersburg State University, Russia) as a forum where young researchers can meet, present their studies and get valuable feedback.

This year’s Colloquium was held at Innopolis University, Kazan. It is the first Russian higher education institution to focus on advanced education and research in the field of Computer Science and Robotics.

Olga Moskaleva has 6 years of experience working as a QA analyst at Exactpro. She spent the last two years testing market surveillance systems developed by Millennium IT and has recently been promoted to Researcher. Anna Gromova, Exactpro Researcher, manages research projects and summer internships for the Computer Science students of the Higher School of Economics. Anna’s scientific interests focus on Classification and Cluster Analysis of Defect Reports.
