Computational Intelligence in Software Quality Assurance by Scott Dick

By Scott Dick

Software program platforms encompass us. software program is a serious part in every thing from the kin vehicle via electricity structures to army apparatus. As software program performs an ever-increasing function in our lives and livelihoods, the standard of that software program turns into an increasing number of severe. notwithstanding, our skill to convey top quality software program has now not stored up with these expanding calls for. the industrial fallout is gigantic; the united states economic system on my own is wasting over US$50 billion in keeping with 12 months as a result of software program disasters. This booklet provides new study into utilizing complex man made intelligence thoughts to lead software program caliber advancements. The strategies of chaos concept and knowledge mining are delivered to undergo to supply new insights into the software program improvement method. Written for researchers and practitioners in software program engineering and computational intelligence, this ebook is a different and demanding bridge among those fields.

There are also a number of computationally intelligent approaches for supporting software engineers. Computational Intelligence and computationally intelligent approaches to software engineering are reviewed in the next two sections. 4 Computational Intelligence Computational Intelligence (CI) is a term coined in 1994 to describe several synergistic intelligent technologies that are effective in modeling systems, processes and decision making under uncertain conditions with incomplete and/or imprecise information [90].

The idea is to present user programs with a specific target machine architecture, independently of the processor the software actually runs on. This is a step beyond portability; instead of simply enforcing a standard language that can be recompiled for a target system, a virtual machine allows programs to run without any changes or recompilation. The best-known virtual machine today is probably the Java Virtual Machine (JVM), which simulates a processor who native assembly language is Java [ 1681.

In the simplest form of crossover, a crossover point on the two chromosomes is selected at random, and the chromosomes exchange all data after that point, while keeping their own data up to that point. In order to introduce additional variation in the population, a mutation operator will randomly change a bit or bits in some chromosome(s). Usually, the mutation rate is kept low to permit good solutions to remain stable [193]. The two most critical elements of a genetic algorithm are the way solutions are represented, and the fitness function, both of which are problem-dependent.
