  • [1911.04768] Debugging Crashes using Continuous Contrast Set Mining “…. Debugging groups of crashes is a manually intensive process that requires deep domain expertise and close inspection of traces and code, often under time constraints. We use contrast set mining, a form of discriminative pattern mining, to learn what distinguishes one group of crashes from another. Prior works focus on discretization to apply contrast mining to continuous data. We propose the first direct application of contrast learning to continuous data, without the need for discretization.”

I just committed to run the Triple Nessie Challenge. Dina’s already done a virtual event, but I was reluctant, since I had a best-in-a-decade 5K result in February.
