Artificial Intelligence in Software Engineering (AISE) Lab
The AISE Lab performs research in the application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques in the field of Software Engineering (SE). Currently, one of our main research topics is the use of Evolutionary Algorithms (a sub-field of AI) to solve the SE problem of automatically generating test cases for web and enterprise applications.
One of the main goals of the group is to do research with practical value for SE practitioners. This means that not only we have collaborations with different industrial partners, but also all of the software outputs of our projects are released as open-source, with strong emphasis in developing usable tools (and not just throw-away proof-of-concepts). Our current flagship tool is called EvoMaster (www.evomaster.org).
We are also very fortunate to have close collaborations with Prof. Juan Pablo Galeotti and his research group at the University of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The lab is currently funded by:
- 2020-2025: ERC Consolidator Grant "Using Evolutionary Algorithms to Understand and Secure Web/Enterprise Systems".
- 2018-2021: NFR Frinatek Grant "EET: Evolutionary Enterprise Testing".
