ML Is Looking Over My Shoulder

Super fascinating attempt at creating a model that looks for errors and/or style issues in code using neural networks in this article from Sam Gentle.

Machine learning is the kind of thing where you can get a tantalising  result in a week, and then spend years of work turning it into something  reliable enough to be useful. To that end, I hereby provide a  tantalising result and leave the years of work as an exercise for the  reader.

Obviously, like any other piece of software... 😂
