Galois Awarded Phase II SBIR with Office of Naval Research: Programmer Intention Capture Tool (PICT)
Galois has been selected by the Office of Naval Research (ONR) for a Phase II Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) award, for its PICT tool that interactively captures and manages programmers' intentions.
The design of a software product often isn't fully captured by the semantics and syntax of the language - many aspects of the design reside in documents, in the heads of programmers, and other places not easily analyzed. PICT is a mechanism to capture these programmer "intentions" in such a way that static analysis tools can be guided to check how the code and these intentions match up. By providing a mechanism for essentially scripting static analysis methods, we reduce the difficulty of taking advantage of them to analyze code for a wide variety of intentions.
