Secure Your Code with AI and NLP
Software Engineering Institute
As every software engineer knows, writing secure software is an incredibly difficult task. There are many techniques available to assist developers in finding bugs hiding in their code, but none are perfect, and an adversary only needs one to cause problems. In this talk, we discussed how a branch of artificial intelligence called Natural Language Processing, or NLP, is being applied to computer code. Using NLP, we can find bugs that aren’t visible to existing techniques, and we can start to understand better what our computers are creating. While this field is still young, advances are coming rapidly, and we talk about the current state of the art and what we expect to see in the near future.
