Anyone know about work along the lines of HAL?
Dave, I hate to interrupt, but I’ve detected a fault in one of my circuits.
I’ve stumbled on a need for this as well as a way to implement it: Software that re-runs its test suite on itself after updating its fixtures based on new environmental factors. The next step (which I’ll start working on) is software that fixes itself.
I realized that maybe people in the Elixir/Erlang community may have done work in this area, given the hot-swappable nature of the system. Anybody heard of work like this? It’s been surprisingly tricky to search for because I end up with lots of hits for automated testing, which is only a lower-level component of what I’m talking about.
EDIT: It looks like
self-healing might be the thing I’m after.
