Presentation Information

Title:  Software Engineering with Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning Techniques


In the next decade, Artificial Intelligent (AI) techniques can see wide adoption in our daily life to release human burden. In our recent Software Engineering research, we investigated on the design of novel AI approaches and machine learning technique to facilitate three major phases in software engineering: development, operation, and analysis. In this talk, I will first introduce the AI and machine learning techniques we employed. Then I will explain the challenges in each phase and describe our recently achieved methodologies. In development phase, we suggested an automated code completion technique via deep learning, and designed a tool named LogAdvisor to help developers whether they should write a logging statement in the current code block or not. In operation phase, we proposed comprehensive techniques to automatically prioritize app issues by mining user reviews, and to identify emerging issues from app reviews. In analysis phase, we formulated systematic data analytics techniques for software reliability prediction, and established effective methods for systematic log management. In the end, we expect to establish a comprehensive framework for systematic employment of AI and machine learning techniques in the modern Software Engineering paradigm.
