Summary
• People are aware of the use of AI
techniques in SE
• 95% of respondents consider AI in SE to be
emerging or evergreen
• Only 13% of people expect AI techniques
to automatically solve problems
Lessons Learned
• Integration of AI techniques and human
engineers should be seamless
• Participants thought more of machine
learning than SBSE
• Some participants thought AI techniques
are oversold and not sound
• Divergent ideas about maturity
Threats to Validity
• Some questions dependent on previous
answers
• 25 participants
• Questionnaire design
Final Comment
