Intel Labs invests millions of dollars in machine programming (MP) as it is selected as a “Pioneering Research” effort. Justin Gottschlich is selected as the research leader for MP and is made the Founder & Director of the Machine Programming Research (MPR) group at Intel Labs as well as a spokesperson for the company of MP research.
Justin Gottschlich accepts adjunct professor invitation at University of Pennsylvania and begins work on the invention of multiple MP systems (e.g., AutoPerf, MISIM, NetSyn).
Justin Gottschlich and his Intel Labs MPR team file ~100 patents in the space of machine programming, including publishing over a dozen publications in MP at tier-1 venues such as NeurIPS and MLSys over the last several years.
Justin Gottschlich is unanimously selected as the steering committee chair of the former ACM SIGPLAN MAPL workshop by peers at Google AI, MIT, Stanford, CAL, Uber Research & UPenn. Renames venue as “ACM SIGPLAN Machine Programming Symposium (MAPS)”.
Justin Gottschlich solo invents ControlFlag.
Intel debuts ControlFlag at Intel Labs day 2020 where it is able to identify novel defects in production-quality open-source software systems (e.g., cURL).
Intel begins exploration of ControlFlag as it identifies over 300 novel, previously undetected defects, in production-quality deployed software. These detections result in savings of over $65M in a scan of a single proprietary source code repository.
ControlFlag is open-sourced and receives nearly 1000 GitHub stars in two months with strong support from the open-source community.
Merly.ai is incorporated. Founder Justin Gottschlich is named CEO and Chief Scientist.
Co-Founder Urs Muff is named CTO. Paul Gottschlich is named CFO and the CEO’s Chief of Staff. Justin and Urs, including MIT Prof. Tim Kraska, are added to Merly’s Board of Directors.
Merly.ai’s CTO, Urs Muff, and CEO, Justin Gottschlich, design and implement MP-CodeCheck, enabling it to process billions of lines of code, making it extraordinarily efficient.
Core team officially onboards merly.ai on January 14th.
Merly.ai raises ~ $1M in angel funding.
