Centre for Open Software Innovation
Director: Prof Ian Witten
The Centre for Open Software Innovation (COSI) provides a focus for open software development at the University, promoting and supporting the principles of open development, and showcasing exemplars of open software. The Centre’s research programme is directed by four goals:
- to inspire and extend open development practice in computer science
- to innovate systems, theories and tools to improve software processes and products
- to excel at core science theory and practice as the foundation for innovation
- to be community leaders at local, national and international levels through effective advocacy, communication and openness.
COSI maintains a software repository that acts as an active work storage space allowing for comprehensive and systematic scientific testing that is lacking in most current software development.
