                 with self-improving capability. During daytime business
                 hours it provides an overview and control for many
                 specialists to simultaneously schedule and observe the
                 rehabilitation process for multiple clients. However in
                 the evening, after the last user logs out, it starts a
                 self-analysis based on the day's recorded interactions.
                 It generates test data from the recorded interactions
                 for Genetic Improvement to fix any recorded bugs that
                 have raised exceptions. The system has already been
                 under test for over 6 months and has in that time
                 identified, located, and fixed 22 bugs. No other bugs
                 have been identified by other methods during that time.
                 It demonstrates the effectiveness of simple test data
                 generation and the ability of GI for improving live
