National Science Foundation collaborative grant entitled “Asked and Answered: Intelligent Data Science for Software Projects” will support development of a tool that can answer software analytics queries over systems engineering project data (e.g., requirements, design, code, test cases and fault logs). This project is done in collaboration with Dr. Jane Huang from University of Notre Dame; the effort at DePaul will focus on developing a federated database query engine that can efficiently execute software analytics queries based on heterogeneous data sources and subject to data sharing and distribution policies.
