System To Automatically Repair Computer Bugs

Tired of Computer Bugs? MIT May Have the Answer.

FoxNews | January 29, 2016

Researchers at MIT have developed a system to automatically repair computer bugs.
The program can comb through repairs to open-source computer programs and learn their general properties, according to MIT, building new repairs for a different set of programs.
The researchers tested the system on a set of programming errors, culled from real open-source applications, that had been compiled to evaluate automatic bug-repair systems. The MIT system repaired between 15 and 18, depending on whether it settled on the first solution it found or was allowed to run longer, MIT notes. Earlier systems were only able to repair one or two of the bugs.
