Testing is the most common approach in practice to check software. Regression testing checks software changes. A key challenge for regression tests is to detect software bugs and fail when a change introduces a bug, signaling to the developer to fix it. However, an emerging challenge is that the tests must also not fail when there is no bug in the change. Unfortunately, some tests, called flaky, can non-deterministically pass or fail on the same software, even when it has no bug. Such flaky tests give false alarms to developers about the existence of bugs. A developer may end up wasting time trying to fix bugs not relevant to the recent changes the developer made. I will present some work done by my group and our collaborators to alleviate the problem of flaky tests.
