  • Australia

Job Description:

Student / Intern Machine Learning driven software bug detection - 190013BD

Preferred Qualifications

A six month, full time research internship, starting January 2020 is available at Oracle Labs

The objective of this internship is to detect program bugs through semantic modelling of source code As bug detection is usually considered as a classification problem, it is crucial to select suitable features that can distinguish buggy programs from bug-free ones However, identifying such discriminating features through manual analysis or heuristics still remain challenging

This internship will explore Graph Neural Networks (GNN) to model source code such that program semantics are precisely captured Graphs are the basic data-structure for any analysis of programs, hence, graph-based source code representation is ideal for bug detection Programs are represented as abstract syntax tree, control-flow or data-flow graph and neural graph embedding technique is applied to learn a vector representation of programs Finally, machine learning classifier (eg, SVM) is used to detect whether a program is buggy or bug-free Specifically, we are interested in detection of memory related bugs in C/C , such as use-after-free, double-free and so on
