A Systematic Literature Review on Fault Prediction Performance in Software Engineering
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Software Engineering
By Tracy Hall,Sarah Beecham,David Bowes,David Gray,Steve Counsell
Issue Date:November 2012
pp. 1276-1304
Background: The accurate prediction of where faults are likely to occur in code can help direct test effort, reduce costs, and improve the quality of software. Objective: We investigate how the context of models, the independent variables used, and the mod...
Developing Fault-Prediction Models: What the Research Can Show Industry
Found in: IEEE Software
By Tracy Hall,Sarah Beecham,David Bowes,David Gray,Steve Counsell
Issue Date:November 2011
pp. 96-99
A systematic review of the research literature on fault-prediction models from 2000 through 2010 identified 36 studies that sufficiently defined their models and development context and methodology. The authors quantitatively analyzed 19 of these studies a...
The Pros and Cons of Using FACET for Analysing Qualitative Data
Found in: Computer-Human Interaction, Australasian Conference on
By Elizabeth A. Kemp, David I. Gray
Issue Date:December 1998
pp. 208
In this paper, the FACET approach to analysing qualitative data for the purposes of interface evaluation is described. The reliability and validity issues that arise from basing an interface evaluation on qualitative data are discussed. The practicability ...
Comparing the performance of fault prediction models which report multiple performance measures: recomputing the confusion matrix
Found in: Proceedings of the 8th International Conference on Predictive Models in Software Engineering (PROMISE '12)
By David Bowes, David Gray, Tracy Hall
Issue Date:September 2012
pp. 109-118
There are many hundreds of fault prediction models published in the literature. The predictive performance of these models is often reported using a variety of different measures. Most performance measures are not directly comparable. This lack of comparab...
A frequency based sighting blurring algorithm for use with location based services on the internet
Found in: Proceedings of the 10th international conference on Human computer interaction with mobile devices and services (MobileHCI '08)
By Cameron Ross Dunne, David Gray, Thibault Candebat
Issue Date:September 2008
pp. 1-30
In this paper we describe a sighting blurring algorithm for use by a trusted middleware infrastructure, which is part of an architecture that supports the operation of Location Based Services (LBSs) over the Internet. This infrastructure can only obtain si...
