Speaker: Isil Dillig, University of Texas at Austin
Location: Raiffeisen Lecture Hall
Program synthesis aims to automatically synthesize programs from high-level expressions of user intent, such as examples, logical specifications, or a simple reference implementation. This talk will survey some of the techniques underlying modern program synthesis tools and highlight its applications for both end-users and professional developers. The talk will aim to illustrate how program synthesis can help automate tasks across many layers in the software stack, ranging from low-level systems code all the way up to computer end users.
