Turns out machine learning is a champ at fixing buggy code

It can fix 10 times as many errors as other systems can, MIT says A new automatic bug-repair system fixes 10 times as many errors as its predecessors did, MIT researchers say. Credit: MIT News IDG News Service Feb 2, 2016 12:01 PM Here’s yet another new application of machine learning:  MIT has developed a system for fixing errors in bug-riddled code. The new machine-learning system developed by researchers at MIT can fix roughly 10 times as many errors as its predecessors could, the researchers say. They presented a paper describing the new system, dubbed “Prophet,” at the Principles of Programming Languages symposium last month. Essentially, the system works by studying patches already made to open-source computer programs in the past in order to learn their general properties. Prophet was…
