Bot Detection


Introduced by Dey et al. in Detecting and Characterizing Bots that Commit Code

BIMAN, or Bot Identification by commit Message, commit Association, and author Name, is a technique to detect bots that commit code. It is comprised of three methods that consider independent aspects of the commits made by a particular author: 1) Commit Message: Identify if commit messages are being generated from templates; 2) Commit Association: Predict if an author is a bot using a random forest model, with features related to files and projects associated with the commits as predictors; and 3) Author Name: Match author’s name and email to common bot patterns.
