DAASE: Dynamic Adaptive Automated Software Engineering

Computer systems have automated many tasks, eliminating the need for mindless repetition and vastly speeding up many processes. However, developing software itself remains a slow and error-prone process; this wastes developers' time and prevents rapid adjustment to changing needs. The Centre for Research on Evolution, Search and Testing will work to address this by developing a radical technique, Dynamic Adaptive Automated Software Engineering. DAASE will develop theory, algorithms, methods, techniques and tools for adaptive software engineering, with the aim of producing systems that self-monitor and evolve to handle dynamically changing development processes and dynamically changing operating environments. It will draw on expertise from the universities of York, Birmingham and Stirling.
