Improving Programmability and Performance for Mobile/Cloud Applications

The proliferation of datacenters, smartphones, personal sensing and tracking devices, and home automation products is fundamentally changing the applications we interact with daily.  Modern applications are no longer limited to a single desktop computer but now commonly span many mobile devices and cloud servers.  In this talk, I will present three systems that improve the programmability and performance of modern mobile/cloud applications: Sapphire, Diamond and TAPIR.  These systems tackle a new set of challenges in runtime management, data management, and distributed transactional storage. Together, they significantly simplify the development of mobile/cloud applications. ...

Scalable Semantic Code Search for High-Quality Program Repair

Bugs in programs remain a pernicious problem.  Research techniques in automated program improvement and repair are typically classified as either heuristic---searching over a set of syntactic changes, often drawn from an existing body of code---or semantic---leveraging symbolic analysis or synthesis to construct program-improving changes with respect to an inferred specification.  In this talk, I will outline our recent advances in techniques that lie squarely in the middle, drawing on the best of both worlds: We reason about desired program behavior semantically, and use that characterization to scalably identify and adapt pre-existing code to fix bugs automatically.  I will particularly emphasize the potential these approaches have to construct high quality patches, tackling a key outstanding challenge in the state-of-the-art in automated patching. ...
