   Artificial intelligence for a better future: an ecosystem perspective on the ethics of AI and emerging digital technologies
Stahl B.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2021. 124 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030699-77-2)

Ethics may save us from the possibly negative effects of artificial intelligence (AI). The author, Stahl, leads the SHERPA consortium, whose work is the basis of this book. Project Sherpa ( stands for ”shaping t...

   Regulating artificial intelligence
Wischmeyer T., Rademacher T.,  Springer, New York, NY, 2020. 391 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030323-60-8)

As an emeritus professor of computer science, I found this book to be a very interesting introduction to a very relevant topic: the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI). In the preface, the authors note: “the belief that something need...

   The future of music: towards a computational musical theory of everything
Mazzola G., Noer J., Pang Y., Yao S., Afrisando J., Rochester C., Neace W.,  Springer International Publishing, New York, NY, 2020. 257 pp. Type: Book (978-3-030397-08-1)

When I picked this book to review, I had expected a book about formal theories of music: notations, definitions, functions, relations, theorems, and so on. However, when I opened it, I found professional, academic musicians’ thoughts about f...

  DeFlaker: automatically detecting flaky tests
Bell J., Legunsen O., Hilton M., Eloussi L., Yung T., Marinov D.  ICSE 2018 (Proceedings of the 40th International Conference on Software Engineering, Gothenburg, Sweden,  May 27-Jun 3, 2018) 433-444, 2018. Type: Proceedings

One of the final steps in producing a new version of a software tool is to make sure the old functionality was not lost when the new functionality was added. A common approach to this problem is regression testing, that is, running the test cases ...

  Estimating semantic relatedness in source code
Mahmoud A., Bradshaw G.  ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology 25(1): 1-35, 2015. Type: Article

Analyzing existing source code to identify relationships between classes might be more accurate using the authors’ new method, normalized software distance, which is introduced, derived, and analyzed in this paper. Correctly identifying rela...

  QVM: an efficient runtime for detecting defects in deployed systems
Arnold M., Vechev M., Yahav E.  ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology 21(1): 1-35, 2011. Type: Article

Identification of errors during runtime is an important complement to existing static and dynamic testing. Errors such as memory leaks, assertion violations, and object ownership issues in the heap can only be detected well during normal execution...

  On the role of the user in monitoring the environment in self-adaptive systems: a position paper
Whittle J., Simm W., Ferrario M.  SEAMS 2010 (Proceedings of the 2010 ICSE Workshop on Software Engineering for Adaptive and Self-Managing Systems, Cape Town, South Africa,  May 3-4, 2010) 69-74, 2010. Type: Proceedings

Adaptability in a self-adaptive system (SAS) is an important research topic. This paper considers three scenarios: a smart house with a mobile vacuum system that needs to plan coverage based on various types of obstacles, a Web site that needs to ...

  Verification of sequential and concurrent programs
Apt K., de Boer F., Olderog E.,  Springer Publishing Company, Incorporated, New York, NY, 2009. 502 pp. Type: Book (978-1-848827-44-8)

This is the third edition of a well-known text on formal verification of software programs. The major change from the second edition is the addition of proofs of object-oriented programs. The authors added three brand-new chapters and made changes...

  Verdict functions in testing with a fault domain or test hypotheses
Hierons R.  ACM Transactions on Software Engineering and Methodology 18(4): 1-19, 2009. Type: Article

State-based testing is used when both the state of the system and the external outputs from the system are important to the notion of correctness. For example, if the system to be tested is a finite stack, it might be important to know if the stac...

  Validation of network measures as indicators of defective modules in software systems
Tosun A., Turhan B., Bener A.  PROMISE 2009 (Proceedings of the 5th International Conference on Predictor Models in Software Engineering, Vancouver, BC, Canada,  May 18-19, 2009) 1-9, 2009. Type: Proceedings

The ability to identify software modules that contain defects by using network measures would be a tremendous achievement in software engineering. This paper reproduces the results of Zimmermann and Nagappan [1] in using network measures to predic...
