Deep learning applications become increasingly popular in important domains such as self-driving systems and facial identity systems. Defective deep learning applications may lead to catastrophic consequences. Although recent research efforts were made on testing and debugging deep learning applications, the characteristics of deep learning defects have never been studied. To fill this gap, we studied deep learning application bugs collected from StackOverflow QA pages and Github projects. We extracted information from QA pages, commit messages, pull request messages, and issue discussions to examine the root causes and symptoms of these bugs. We also studied the strategies deployed by developers for bug detection and localization. These findings help researchers and developers to gain a better understanding of deep learning defects and point out new direction for future research.
