Teams Deploy Artificial Intelligence to Help Debug Code

Billions of lines of code are written each year, with many applications built on open-source code shared widely among developers. Therein lies a problem: A single error can ripple into thousands of vulnerabilities, giving hackers a gateway to access secure information or disrupt major infrastructure systems. Project teams are now testing whether artificial intelligence (AI) could be a solution. Whereas human detection of software bugs is time-consuming and imperfect, AI can identify common bugs quickly and efficiently.
