AI, Architecture and Machine Learning


Remember agile architects’ tightrope walk between flexibility/performance and testability/reliability/predictability/V&V? Machine Learning (ML) is leveling up the same tradeoff. 

Whether you’re just starting to keep an eye on ML, or are already adjusting your architecture to the current wave of AI, this course addresses several issues most architects will be facing in an architectural landscape where ML is a fast-grower. The course is not tied to a particular vendor, language, framework, library, or environment.

Architects, modelers, informaticians, analysts, designers, tech managers, domain experts, and other roles involved in/affected by AI projects.


Agile Architecture Fundamentals or corresponding experience/knowledge of IT architecture in an agile setup. Even experience from other roles in the IT field is useful, not least from knowledge-intensive sectors or AI-related.

Kursinnehåll: AI, Architecture and Machine Learning

Introduction: Abstraction levels, AI, ML’s past and present

  • Abstraction levels: architect versus devs
  • AI apps overview: pushing up the bar for intelligent systems
  • The evolution of ML apps:  from slow and auditable, to fast smart and opaque. Despite ML’s roots (rule induction and mining) in the successful decryption of unbreakable ciphers, its near future seems encoded as weight values in deep neural networks. Whereas for example black-box flight recorders clarified the chain of events & decisions in past emergencies, ML has now, paradoxically, landed in black boxes that hide opaque logic.
  • A short exercise 
  • Predictions for the next 10-18 months: AI investment, and tech challenges to cope with.
  • A short exercise

Consequences in architecture, analytics, HMI, RT

  • NFR and Quality Attributes, businesses where “better on average” is no longer “good enough” as it was in recommender engines or marketing to layman consumers
  • Three categories of ML
  • Deep Learning
  • The comeback of Data Architecture in Software Architecture
  • The increasing overlap  RT – DB apps, and edge ML & computing
  • The two-way street: Architecture for AI, and AI for Architecture.
  • A short exercise

The role of architects 

  • What is, and is not, in the job description of an architect 
  • Perspective (broad, integrated) compared to others (dev, researcher, prime mover) 
  • The systems portfolio and digital twins (“avatars”) cross-connecting perspectives
  • Architectural tactics, thinking, abstraction level, and background
  • A short exercise 
  • Agile architecture, variability, and edge ML. 

Tackling the leveled-up tradeoff

  • Top-down: a framework of corporate values and procedures to boost V&V and transparency 
  • Bottom-up: tech and practices in IT to build in transparency mechanisms upfront (visualization, explanation, traceability, etc.)
  • Explainable AI (XAI) “Big bang,” via research into self-explanation capabilities for deep neural networks 
  • Corporate “think big, start small,” XAI via hybrid AI.
