Intelligent Software Engineering Lab

Computer Science and Electrical Engineering
Handong Global University, Korea


We, ISELers, study challenging issues in Software Engineeirng, particulary problems related to debugging activities. We believe what we are doing explicitly helps software developers and inherently helps people all over the world who use various software products. This is a way we serve our neighbours and why we study and learn.

Our major apporaches to solve the problems are Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Mining Software Repositories (MSR). By using various techniques based on AI and MSR, we are currently focusing on topics about defect prediction and detection. In addition, we are doing our best to design and implement new software engineering tools by analyzing data mined from software repositories.

We always welcome new members who want to join ISEL (a second-year student wanted)!
