• Machine Learning Could Be Used To Identify Anonymous Code

    3 days ago - By Ubergizmo

    Just like cooking, drawing, or writing, when it comes to coding, every programmer has a personal preference in how the algorithm is laid out, how certain pieces of code are strung together, and so on, ultimately creating a “signature” of sorts. Now researchers have found that by using machine learning, it can be used to help identify pieces of code even if they were written anonymously. This is according to Rachel Greenstadt, an associate professor of computer science at Drexel University, who together with Aylin Caliskan who was her former PhD student and is now an assistant professor at...
