A novel methodology for automatic bug fixing
In recent years, the field of software engineering has generated a lot of interest and gained traction thanks to its ability to be incorporated for use by almost any other field. Despite its popularity, however, software engineering has faced major difficulties since its beginning. For instance, bugs can still pop up, with unexpected results for the software. This is why automatic bug fixing has always been a subject of much interest for the software engineering community. However, attempts to provide a solution have encountered problems concerning the methodology used. The EU-funded NATURAL project aims to develop a software contributor that is able to synthesise code using a natural language description of a problem the user faces. The new solution is set to radically transform software engineering.
