Abstract: During the software development process, the capacity to meticulously replay bugs is a foundational element in safeguarding the system reliability. Given the substantial number of reported bugs in prevalent software, automating the bug replay process is becoming an imperative necessity. Contemporary strategies often encounter numerous drawbacks including inaccurate reproductions, significant overheads, and an absence of contextual insights, which inadvertently fuel inefficient debugging processes. In this talk, he is going to introduce his latest works (e.g., ICSE'23, FSE'23, Ubicomp'23) on different aspects of automated bug replay, from visual and textual reports, by leveraging data-driven methods including ChatGPT and computer-vision algorithms. He will also briefly talk about application of bug replay technology into human-computer interaction domain i.e., UI automation.
