GraphicsFuzz Ltd., co-founded by Alastair Donaldson, Hugues Evrard and Paul Thomson of Imperial College London, has been acquired by Google. The GraphicsFuzz team will join Google’s Android Graphics Team to integrate their specialist graphics driver testing technology within the Android ecosystem. Alastair Donaldson is a Co Investigator in the VeTSS funded project Automated Testing for Web Browsers.
GraphicsFuzz has pioneered the combination of fuzzing and metamorphic testing to yield a highly automatic method for testing graphics drivers that quickly finds and fixes bugs that could undermine reliability and security before they affect end users. Alastair Donaldson said: “The acquisition by Google is a fantastic opportunity to maximise the worldwide impact of our graphics driver testing technology.”
