AI Bug Finder

In the last few years, AI techniques have been applied for vulnerability detection in code. We are developing source code datasets and metrics to accelerate the development of AI-based bug-finding.

The AI Bug Finder is a modular and expandable test bed for evaluating AI-based methods for finding bugs in source code.

The development of the AI Bug Finder is supported by the Department of Homeland Security Science and Technology CAP (press release).
