Using entropy theories to predict bugs...

Using Entropy measurements applied to source code changes to predict bugs.

This article takes a slightly new angle on a well-known problem of predicting bugs in source code. The authors take source code changes and use that as an input to calculate entropy and predict bugs.

Based on their results from applying of this approach on Mozilla's code, the results seem to be promising...
