Photos of the Day: NASA App Finds Errors in Software Logic

August 28, 2014 10:15 am | by NASA | News | Comments

To err is human, but don't worry about it. NASA has an app for that. It's called IKOS and it's actually much more sophisticated than a mobile device app. In fact, it's a fully developed program that finds errors in the logic of software that is still under development. IKOS is short for Inference Kernel for Open Static Analyzers...
