This page outlines the press that my research has received from various media outlets.
"This is just one scenario demonstrating one of many inherent flaws that computer scientists at the College of William and Mary discovered in internet-connected smart home devices during tests they conducted over the summer."
"According to a new study by computer scientists at The College of William & Mary, even seemingly benign smart home devices, like smart plugs or lightbulbs, can provide entry points for hackers.”
"Researchers and study author Kaushal Kafle, of the College of William & Mary, talks with Les Sinclair about their discovery of potential vulnerabilities to hack your smart devices in your home, making your home it easier to break into your house."
"In testing it was discovered that CrashScope is as good as existing automatic testing tools in provoking a crash but it was better at reporting and reproducing the crash. The whole process is completely automated. You submit your apk to CrashScope and it generates suitable inputs which are recorded."
"Auto-completion systems that attempt to finish your sentences when typing text messages or search queries can be a mixed blessing. Often, they save time. But they can also get in the way when they make incorrect guesses about intended input. In the context of software bug reporting, however, auto-completion – adding additional information to bug report filings – doesn't have much of a downside."
"The SEMERU research team has taken the first step towards addressing these problems by developing a novel bug reporting mechanism called Fusion that operates under the following key insight: automated program analysis techniques can be used to bridge the lexical knowledge gap between reporters and developers."
"The way humans use language informs how we process information and the same goes for computers, Poshyvanyk says. Just like human speech, computer language — or source code — has its own syntax and semantics. Poshyvanyk, an associate professor in William & Mary’s Department of Computer Science, has been working to bridge that human-to-computer language gap for the better part of the past decade. He and a team of nine W&M students are researching the ways code can mirror human communication."
