    Combinatorial testing can detect hard-to-find software faults more efficiently than manual test case selection methods. While the most basic form of combinatorial testing-pairwise-is well established, and adoption by software testing practitioners continues to increase, industry usage of these methods remains patchy at best. However, the additional training required is well worth the effort. View full abstract»

    Timing is everything. Neurons fire in time-locked fashion to propagate signals and form memories. The cell division cycle, the process by which an adult cell divides into two daughter cells, is carefully orchestrated by rises and decays of regulating protein concentrations. Engineered systems, like data centers, also involve temporal coordination. A few months back, the music service Last.fm had t... View full abstract»
