OXFORD, United Kingdom, March 23, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Diffblue, developer of the world’s first fully autonomous AI-for-code generative software, announced today that it has been granted three patents from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). ) for new innovations in its proprietary artificial intelligence (AI) application, Diffblue Cover.
“Diffblue pioneered the use of AI to generate software unit tests, and today our technology is the only solution on the market that is fully autonomous and requires no human review,” said Mathew Lodge, CEO of Diffblue. “We are proud to have received these patents because they recognize our significant contributions to advancing AI, driving innovation for our customers and helping them better achieve their business goals.”
Diffblue Cover offers companies running Java a unique way to unlock the business value of unit testing by allowing them to:
Autonomously write and maintain unit test suites for entire applications up to 250 times faster than humans; Automatically refactor Java code to improve testability; Reduce the time and cost of running tests in CI (Continuous Integration); Help development managers understand test coverage and all code risks across their organization.
The three issued US patents apply to systems and methods for automotive test generation, initialization sequences and idiomatic source code generation.
Diffblue’s powerful unique AI engine automates the writing of critical software tests for some of the world’s largest companies. Developed in close collaboration with Goldman Sachs and AWS – it uses advanced generative AI algorithms to generate comprehensive tests for JAVA code (the world’s most popular programming language, used by millions of developers and running on billions of devices worldwide), to ensure the code is always available – up-to-date and bug-free. Developed by Oxford University AI professors, Diffblue cuts in half the time developers currently spend writing tests themselves. It also increases the amount of code covered by tests to identify bugs sooner.
