On March 15, we organized a scientific seminar on “Homomorphically Encrypted Optimal Control Implementation – Current Challenges and Their Solutions“. Diana Dzurková, a PhD student at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava, Slovakia, led the seminar, which was organized in the framework of the FrontSeat project as part of the seminar series on “Research Seminar on Smart Cybernetics”.

This presentation is centered around the encrypted optimal control with a focus on identifying suitable types of homomorphic encryption types for process control applications. The operational principles of these encryption types will be discussed, with an emphasis on their challenges and the subsequent implications for advanced control methods such as model predictive control.  In the latter part of the presentation, the focus shifts to current efforts for addressing these challenges. Innovative strategies and solutions used to navigate the intricacies of homomorphic encryption principles are highlighted within the ongoing discourse on encrypted optimal control. The intention is to offer a clearer understanding of the current state of research and potential pathways for future advancements in process control applications.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon under grant no. 101079342 (Fostering Opportunities Towards Slovak Excellence in Advanced Control for Smart Industries).
