Researchers often make useful datasets available to other researchers through publications at leading conferences. One of these conferences is Mining Software Repositories (MSR), which has a data track. Since this is a well-regarded, peer-reviewed conference, you can be confident that the provided data set is of research quality. Your first step in this assignment is to select a dataset which you would like to run your knowledge management tool against, and decide on the information you would like to procure from this dataset. You may choose a dataset published at any MSR conference held in the last five years. While you are not expected to make any profound research discoveries through this analysis, you are expected to (re)produce interesting results.
You will then document your results and address the following areas: What steps did you go through to implement the tool on the dataset? (include screenshots in an appendix) What issues did you encounter when applying this tool do the dataset? Did your results match the original authors? If not, explain any variance. What gap in knowledge management does this solve? What future research does this enable? Where could it be useful?
