Bellwethers: A Baseline Method For Transfer Learning [article]

Rahul Krishna, Tim Menzies
2018 arXiv   pre-print
To reduce this conclusion instability, we propose the use of "bellwethers": given N projects from a community the bellwether is the project whose data yields the best predictions on all others.  ...  Further, bellwethers appear in many SE tasks such as defect prediction, effort estimation, and bad smell detection.  ...  From a total of 10 studies, two were found to be inconclusive, three supported global models, and five supported local models.  ...

Simplifying Software Defect Prediction (via the "early bird" Heuristic) [article]

N.C. Shrikanth, Tim Menzies
2021 arXiv   pre-print
Specifically, if the historical data has the most information in some small region, then perhaps a model learned from that region would suffice for the rest of the project.  ...  A defect prediction model learned from just the first 150 commits works as well, or better than state-of-the-art alternatives.  ...  Menzies et al. warn that many global lessons (generalizations) are not supported locally [4] .  ...
