How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Automatically generated static code warnings suffer from a large number of false alarms. Hence, developers only take action on a small percent of those warnings. To better predict which static code warnings should not be ignored, we suggest that analysts need to look deeper into their algorithms to find choices that better improve the particulars o...

Static code warning tools often generate warnings that programmers ignore. Such tools can be made more useful via data mining algorithms that select the “actionable” warnings; i.e. the warnings that are usually not ignored. In this paper, we look for actionable warnings within a sample of 5,675 actionable warnings seen in 31,058 static code warning...

How can we make software analytics simpler and faster One method is to match the complexity of analysis to the intrinsic complexity of the data being explored. For example, hyperparameter optimizers find the control settings for data miners that improve the predictions generated via software analytics. Sometimes, very fast hyperparameter optimizati...

Is deep learning over-hyped? Where are the case studies that compare state-of-the-art deep learners with simpler options? In response to this gap in the literature, this paper offers one case study on using deep learning to predict issue close time in Bugzilla. We report here that a SIMPLE extension to a decades-old feedforward neural network works...

Knowledge-based systems reason over some knowledge base. Hence, an important issue for such systems is how to acquire the knowledge needed for their inference. This paper assesses active learning methods for acquiring knowledge for “static code warnings”. Static code analysis is a widely-used method for detecting bugs and security vulnerabilities i...
