SSBSE 2022
Thu 17 - Fri 18 November 2022 Singapore
co-located with ESEC/FSE 2022
Fri 18 Nov 2022 18:30 - 19:00 at Virtual 3 (Whova) - Future of SSBSE 2 Chair(s): Giovani Guizzo

This talk outlines how SBSE can be applied to online software safety. The talk sets out the case for simulation-based testing as fitness function for genetic improvement. Guided by this fitness, a multi objective search identifies code changes that optimise online software safety. The goal is to reduce the potential for one user to harm another user through misuse of the software. The search seeks to reduce this harmful potential without compromising normal system operation and user experience. The talk shows that SBSE is well-suited to online safety. It concludes that this is a highly important and impactful area of research for the community to tackle.

Mark Harman is a full-time Research Scientist at FACEBOOK London, working on FACEBOOK’s Web Enabled Simulation system WW, together with a London-based FACEBOOK team focussing in AI for scalable software engineering. WW is Facebook’s Cyber-Cyber Digital Twin of its platforms, being built with the long-term aim of measuring, predicting and optimising behaviour across all FACEBOOK’s platforms. Mark also holds a part-time professorship at UCL and was previously the manager of FACEBOOK’s Sapienz team team, which grew out of Majicke, a start up co-founded by Mark and acquired by FACEBOOK in 2017. The Sapienz tech has been fully deployed as part of FACEBOOK’s overall CI system since 2017 and the FACEBOOK Sapienz continues to develop and extend it. Sapienz has found and helped to fix thousands of bugs before they hit production, on systems of tens of millions of lines of code, used by over 2.6 billion people world wide every day. In his more purely scientific work, Mark co-founded the field Search Based Software Engineering (SBSE), and is also known for scientific research on source code analysis, software testing, app store analysis and empirical software engineering. He received the IEEE Harlan Mills Award and the ACM Outstanding Research Award in 2019 for his work and was awarded a fellowship of the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2020.
