Thursday, 9/8/2016   
The High-Assurance Software Laboratory (HASLab) of the EEUM, integrated R&D centre of INESC TEC, organised the third edition of Open Day HASLab on the 8th September and launched the SafeCloud Photos mobile application. The event was attended by over 70 participants and focused on the theme "Software Quality".
EEUM’s research centre HASLab (High-Assurance Software Laboratory) organised its 3rd Open Day HASLab, aiming at presenting the centre’s research results and a new mobile application - SafeCloud Photos.

The event counted on the presence of five nationally renowned companies in the areas of technology, science and innovation. After a brief opening session conducted by the President of INESC TEC, José Manuel Mendonça, and a brief presentation of HASLab by one of the Centre’s coordinators, Manuel Barbosa, professor at the Department of Computer Science of the Faculty of Sciences of the University of Porto, the discussion panel began, involving the participation of OutSystems, I2S, Feedzai, Primavera BSS and Critical Manufacturing. In this discussion panel, moderated by José Nuno Oliveira, a researcher from HASLab and Full Professor of the Department of Informatics (DI) of the EEUM, several issues were discussed regarding software quality, as well as how the invited companies – as software producers – develop their software.

In the afternoon, doctoral students and post-doctoral researchers also had the opportunity to show their research work in an exhibition of about 20 posters.

Later on, the launch of SafeCloud Photos took place. SafeCloud Photos is a mobile application that aims to be the safest application on the market, by ensuring maximum privacy and security of uploaded photos. SafeCloud Photos is already available for download in the App Store (iOS) and Google Play Store (Android). According to Francisco Maia, one of the developers of this application and also a researcher from HASLab, "each divided piece of the photo doesn’t reveal absolutely any information on the photo. The photo can only be accessed through our devices, which have exclusive access to all the pieces".

Finally, the event ended with a short speech by Alcino Cunha, Assistant Professor from the Department of Informatics (DI) of the EEUM, one of the Centre’s coordinators, encouraging possible future partnerships with companies and other entities participating in the event.
