Facebook announced at its @Scale engineering conference, about the new tool which reduce the time spent on debugging.

Facebook introduced SapFix, an AI hybrid tool that accelerates the process of shipping robust, and Sapienz, the app’s intelligent automated software testing tool. The next journey in the development of automating debugging, with the potential to boost the performance and solidity of new code for a big companies and research organizations is SapFix. The new independent tool will run with or without the Sapienz because SapFix is only focusing on fixing bugs that is founded by Sapienz.

Facebook added to their blog, “To our knowledge, this marks the first time that a machine-generated fix — with automated end-to-end testing and repair — has been deployed into a codebase of Facebook’s scale. It’s an important milestone for AI hybrids and offers further evidence that search-based software engineering can reduce friction in software development. As we develop SapFix to work with different kinds of bugs and software, the tool has the potential to change the speed and quality of code generation. That’s true not just for companies that operate at large scales, but also for nearly anyone who creates code. Whether used together or separately, SapFix and Sapienz let developers spend less time on debugging and more on generating what’s next.”
