I had the pleasure to present my work on the V:issue:lizer and to argue why I think it was ready for transfer into industry. The following video* (1:46 min) was part of my pitch on why the V:issue:lizer is relevant for software development:

So how can the V:issue:lizer help in this situation? Let’s first look on the visualization of the clarification trajectory derived from the discussion in the video (see a transcript in the making of section below). Continue reading

V:Issue:lizer: Exploring Clarification in Online Communication Over Time

  • analyze communication problems
  • identify domain and project experts.

Here is a preprint of our ICSE2013 Formal Tool Demonstration.
