Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

The oracle problem - the mechanism by which the output associated with a test is determined to pass or fail - is an important, but frequently neglected, challenge for software testing researchers. Artificial immune systems offer a potentially interesting avenue of attack but using their power as classifiers to distinguish between pass outputs and fail outputs. Danger theory looks for other signals to improve this classification. The aim of this paper is to consider how AIS and danger theory may be applied to the oracle problem.
