DeepCode learns from GitHub project data to give developers AI-powered code reviews

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Often, code reviews involve collaborations between the original code authors, their peers, and managers, with a view toward finding obvious errors before it gets to a more advanced phase. And the bigger a project is, the more lines of code there are to review, which is a time-consuming process. There are options out there for analyzing source code for errors, such as static analysis tool Lint, but these are often not holistic in terms of their scope — they’re focused on a smaller, targeted set of “annoying and repeatable stylistic issues, formatting and minor issues,” according to Paskalev.

DeepCode’s selling point is that it covers a broader range of problems, including vulnerabilities such as cross-site scripting and SQL injection, while it also promises to establish the intent behind the code, rather than spotting simple syntax mistakes. Underpinning all this is machine learning (ML) systems, which are trained using billions of lines of code from public open source projects, which constantly learn and update their knowledge base.

Though DeepCode can ingest code from any source code repositories, Paskalev told VentureBeat that the public knowledge base today contains mostly GitHub repositories.

DeepCoder from Microsoft can leave programmers without work

Posted by in categories: information science, robotics/AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a broad field constituted of many disciplines like robotics or machine learning. The aim of AI is to create machines capable of performing tasks and cognitive functions that are otherwise only within the scope of human intelligence. To get there, machines must be able to learn these opportunities automatically instead of having each of them to be explicitly programmed end-to-end.

Another task of AI is to write programs. Similar technology was developed by Microsoft in conjunction with Cambridge University. They developed a program which is able to create other programs, borrowing code. The invention is called DeepCoder. This software that can take into account the requirements of developers and find the code fragments in a large database. You can see the work of scientists here.

“The potential for the automation of writing software code is just incredible. This means a reduction of the huge amount of effort that is required to develop code. Such a system will be much more productive than any man. In addition, you can create a system that was previously impossible to build”,

Canadian scientist sent deadly viruses to Wuhan lab months before RCMP asked to investigate

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, government, military

“We have a researcher who was removed by the RCMP from the highest security laboratory that Canada has for reasons that government is unwilling to disclose. The intelligence remains secret. But what we know is that before she was removed, she sent one of the deadliest viruses on Earth, and multiple varieties of it to maximize the genetic diversity and maximize what experimenters in China could do with it, to a laboratory in China that does dangerous gain of function experiments. And that has links to the Chinese military.”

Gain of function experiments are when a natural pathogen is taken into the lab, made to mutate, and then assessed to see if it has become more deadly or infectious.

Most countries, including Canada, don’t do these kinds of experiments — because they’re considered too dangerous, Attaran said.

Behind the Spacecraft – Perseverance – The Next Mars Rover

Posted by in category: space

Sending a rover to the Red Planet is more than just 3…2…1… Liftoff! 🚀 It takes 1,000s of people and years of hard work to get a spacecraft from Earth to Mars. So when NASA’s Perseverance Mars Rover touches down on the Martian surface, it will be because of the talented NASA minds that helped to make it happen.

Follow the journey of Perseverance:

Scientists Detect Surprise Structures Wrapped Around Earth’s Core

Posted by in category: materials

Blobs of hot, dense material that curl around Earth’s core are much more widespread than previous research suggests.

A new method of analysing earthquake data has found even more of the previously detected continent-sized zones at the boundary between the planet’s core and mantle.

Solved: Fluid Mechanics Mystery That’s Been Puzzling Scientists for Decades

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, chemistry

An Oregon State University environmental engineering professor has solved a decades-old mystery regarding the behavior of fluids, a field of study with widespread medical, industrial, and environmental applications.

The research by Brian D. Wood, published in the Journal of Fluid Mechanics, clears a roadblock that has been puzzling scientific minds for nearly 70 years and paves the way to a clearer picture of how chemicals mix in fluids.

A more complete grasp of that basic principle provides a foundation for advances in a range of areas – from how pollutants spread in the atmosphere to how drugs perfuse tissues within the human body.
