  5. Human-Competitive Patches with RepairnatorRepairnator is a bot. It constantly monitors software bugs discovered during continuous integration of open source software and tries to fix them automatically. If it succeeds to synthesize a valid patch, Repairnator proposes the patch to the human developers, disguised under a fake human identity. To date, Repairnator has been able to produce five patches that were accepted by the human developers and permanently merged in the code base.
