Sikuli Makes a Stir

Associate professor Rob Miller and grad student Tsung-Hsiang Chang have teamed up with the University of Maryland’s Tom Yeh to revolutionize the way we look at computer programming. They’ve created Sikuli, a system that allows programmers to bypass coding and create scripts visually.

Using Sikuli, programs can be written using screenshots of graphical user interfaces (GUIs). Though still in the works, this system could completely change the way the average user interfaces with his or her computer. For more on Sikuli, read the MIT News Office’s feature here.
