AI / GPT Finding, Fixing Bugs in Code! Security Threats?

 Something we saw predicted and then experimented with in the 80s.  Have seen only hints at the possibility since then.   Could be a real powerful plus, especially looking for openings for threats to security.  


ChatGPT Finding, Fixing Bugs in Code, By PC Magazine, January 30, 2023

The ability to chat with ChatGPT after receiving the initial answer made the difference, ultimately leading to ChatGPT solving 31 questions and easily outperforming the others programs.

Computer science researchers from Germany's Johannes Gutenberg University and the U.K.'s University College London found the ChatGPT chatbot can detect and correct buggy code better than existing programs.

The researchers gave 40 pieces of bug-embedded software to ChatGPT, and to three other code-fixing systems for comparison.

ChatGPT's performance on the first pass was similar to that of the other systems, but the ability to dialogue with the bot after receiving the initial answer ultimately helped it overtake the others.

The researchers explained, "We see that for most of our requests, ChatGPT asks for more information about the problem and the bug. By providing such hints to ChatGPT, its success rate can be further increased, fixing 31 out of 40 bugs, outperforming state-of-the-art."
