SHOCKING findings in 2023 Software Engineering papers

* Fuzzing finds bugs
* Every simple working solution absolutely must get an LLM attached to it
* Learners trained on past data do predict future data
* AI systems also need to be tested
* New proposed techniques always work on all studied subjects
* There is always one configuration that beats the benchmark
* Every known technique has been applied to smart contracts, just not by everybody
* Never make developers and users part of your study

In one year of work, Irina Nicolae, Max Eisele, and I have deconstructed the controversial NEUZZ ML-based fuzzer and found that its original performance claims do not hold (see also twitter.com/domenuk/status/151)
Looking forward to lively discussions today 12:15 at ESEC/FSE! dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3611643

Semantic Debugging! We present AVICENNA, a tool to automatically determine precise causes + conditions of software failures: “The program fails if the given <length> is larger than the <payload> length.” Meet us today 5pm at ESEC/FSE! dl.acm.org/doi/10.1145/3611643
