About the Event
Software developers primarily rely on experience and intuition to make
development decisions. I will describe speculative analysis, a new
technique that helps developers make better decisions by informing
them of the consequences of their likely actions.
Yuriy Brun is an NSF CRA CI Fellow at the University of Washington. He received his Ph.D. degree in 2008 from the University of Southern California, as an Andrew Viterbi Fellow, and his M.Eng. degree in 2003 from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His doctoral research was a finalist in the ACM Doctoral Dissertation Competition in 2008. His most recent work on speculative analysis, the subject of his talk, won a 2011 ACM SIGSOFT Distinguished Paper Award. Yuriy’s research interests are in software system modeling, design, and development, focusing on understanding how local component behavior affects global system behavior. His goals are to make it easier for developers to (1) understand their systems' behavior and (2) create systems with desired behavior.
