Discuss the presentation

A software project can have thousands of defects that are presented as bug reports. The information extracted from these bug reports can be viewed as statistical data with hidden dependencies, discovering which can be useful for QA engineers, developers, project managers, and other IT specialists. Our work is devoted to the question of how machine learning techniques can help not only reveal these dependencies, but improve the testing and development strategies.
