Software Systems are becoming larger and more complex, which places a big challenge on software quality assurance because it is almost infeasible to conduct extensive code inspection or testing for every software module. Thus, constructing a predictor to identify the software modules that are likely to be defect-prone can enable a guided testing over those suspicious modules, which essentially help to find and fix more software defects under limited resource for testing. Machine learning is an effective way to construct a predictors from a large amount of historical sample modules. However, historical sample modules might not be always available or useful for identifying for defect patterns for a newly developed software project. In this case, how to learn an effective predictor to identify a defect-prone modules? In this talk, we will discuss the attempts to address this problem with advances in machine learning.
