RESEARCH INTEREST/ Projects
research
Search-based Software Engineering

It applied metaheuristic search algorithms,  such as genetic algorithm and hill climbing,  to solve software Engineering problems,involving software testing and debugging, effectively. 

Automated Program Repair project

Data Science and Machine Learning

Data is used to analyze study and find patterns that are used with machine learning models to give future predictions and insight in all different areas.

Dataset for Arabic text classification project. 

Automation and Smart Solutions

Digital transformation is the era of converting daily work digitally to improve the quality of life. Automation is one aspect of this transformation that can be incorporated with sensors to build smart solutions. 

Prediction of Software Faults using Deep Learning

In software development, machine learning model can be used to detect faulty classes/modules before the testing phase. Thus, focusing testing on more likely faulty components, which in response, will reducing the testing cost. In the current project, we are studying deep algorithms to provide better guidance to software developer.

Development of face news detection System using Arabic Text Analysis 

 Given the potential negative influence of he rapid distribution of fake news , detecting un-monitored ‘fake news’ has become a critical issue in mainstream media. In this work, we developed a machine learning models based on text analysis for Arabic text to detect fake news.
