Software systems nowadays are becoming increasingly complex and vulnerable to all sorts of failures and attacks. There is a rising need for robust self-repairing systems able to restore full functionality in the face of internal and external perturbations, including those that affect their own code base. However, it is difficult to achieve code self-repair with conventional programming models.
