题目：Mining Open Source Repositories for API Understanding
We are now at the age of big data, where lots of software and unstructured data are invading our daily life. To cope with this, mining software repositories (MSR) has emerged as a new research topic aiming at mining those data for uncovering interesting and actionable information about software systems and projects. As an example demonstrating the usefulness of MSR, this talk will focus on mining the Android framework code base to support the understanding of Android APIs. More specifically, this talk will attempt to answer API-related questions such as how do Android APIs evolve over time, how are Android APIs deprecated, how are Android APIs involved compatibility issues, etc.
