AutoCodeRover: Autonomous Program Improvement

automated program repairsoftware engineeringAutoCode RoverGitHub issuespatch generation

Researchers have made significant progress in automating the software development process. The AutoCode Rover approach combines large language models (LLMs) with code search capabilities to autonomously solve GitHub issues for program improvement, repair, and feature addition. Experiments show that AutoCode Rover outperforms developers in resolving GitHub issues. It utilizes AI agents for program improvement tasks, involving context retrieval and patch generation stages. The root cause analysis and patch generation process involve stratified search and spectrum-based fault localization. AutoCode Rover has been evaluated and shows potential for efficient software maintenance. It utilizes spectrum-based fault localization to improve patch generation. The insights gained from AutoCode Rover highlight the need for autonomous processes in code improvements. Future software engineers may shift towards playing different roles simultaneously with tools like AutoCode Rover.

Jamba: A Hybrid Transformer-Mamba Language Model

language modelhybrid transformerMamba

Jamba is a hybrid transformer Mamba language model that combines the benefits of both model families. It outperforms other models on long context evaluations and supports a context length of up to 256K tokens. Jamba's implementation includes normalization techniques in Mamba layers to stabilize training at large scales without explicit positional information. The model has fewer parameters compared to other models but achieves strong performance with better throughput. Jamba can handle long context lengths up to 1M tokens and performs well in evaluations like needle in a haystack and naturalistic long context evaluation. Recent work has explored extracting attention scores from state space models like Mamba, opening new avenues for research. Jamba is a novel architecture combining attention in Mamba layers with Mo modules, achieving state-of-the-art performance and supporting long contexts.
