December 14, 2020 @ 12:00 - 12:30

Welcome to the last brown-bag seminar of 2020! Title: Exploring the cognitive processes used by testers Abstract: In theme one Eduard Paul Enoiu from Mälardalen University has been working towards a cognitive model of software testing based on how problem solving is conceptualized in cognitive psychology. This approach instantiates a general problem solving process for the specific problem of creating test cases in automated testing. A preliminary study led to a pilot experiment to understand the mechanisms by which human…

Lunch seminar: Privacy-aware machine learning method: Federated Learning

February 1 @ 12:00 - 12:30
Virtual event Sweden + Google Map

Presenter: Hongyi Zhang, PhD student, Chalmers Federated Learning is an improved Machine Learning approach which enables edge devices to collaboratively learn a shared machine learning model. The data exchanged between the edge and central server are no longer user data but the updated model weights. Furthermore, as this model training method is distributed, there are chances to make the model become smarter and adapt to their environment. (For example, devices in Malmö and Stockholm can have slightly different models based…

Lunch seminar: Optimized Scheduling of Feature-Based Test Execution

February 8 @ 12:00 - 12:30

As test suites grow larger and more complex, the time and resources required to execute the test suite also grows accordingly. This is particularly true for companies developing diverse product lines, who must execute portions of the test suite on compatible hardware units with the features required by those test cases. We have recently begun to explore the topic of how to efficiently parallelize the execution of test cases across a pool of available hardware units. We propose a search-based…

Title: “There, but what about Back Again? – Propagating manual modifications from generated code to the design model” Speaker: Robbert Jongeling, MDH Abstract: In one of its forms, model-based development brings the benefit of complete code generation from design models. The generated code may be subject to manual changes for several reasons, such as fixing errors after code-level testing, or adjusting the code for different variants of targeted hardware. As a consequence of these manual changes, the consistency between the…

Lunch seminar: Checking the Checkers – Empirical Evaluation of Static Analysis Tools on Testware

March 15 @ 12:00 - 12:30
Virtual event Sweden + Google Map

Software systems are typically divided into production code and test-related code, which have been held to different standards w.r.t. enforcing their respective quality. In recent years, test code quality issues have gained traction, for instance in their relationship to test flakiness. During discussions with industry, despite access to several types of static analysis tools, these are not generally applied to tests with regularity. In this ongoing work, we investigate a set of existing static analysis tools applied on test code…

Lunch seminar: Data Labeling

April 19 @ 12:00 - 12:30

Data Labeling: Industrial Challenges and Mitigation Strategies Labels are a prerequisite to perform supervised machine learning. However, in industrial contexts, data is often incomplete because labels are missing partially or entirely. Even if there exist manual, semi-automatic, and automatic techniques, such as crowdsourcing, active-learning (AL), and semi-supervised learning (SSL), we have seen that AL and SSL are rarely implemented due to lack of knowledge of their existence. Furthermore, labeling instances manually is not optimal as it is time-consuming and challenging…
