Pattern recognition/AI for detecting Spectre-type malware in Open Sores / Javascript /etc

Do you guys think it would be possible (and practical) to write a relatively small programs to perform pattern recognition to detect some Spectre type malware in Javascript and large open sores projects like Firefox Quantum, that make it very hard for people to examine code, just because of the scale of these vast projects?

False positives would be totally fine. Just something that would cut down the humans reading unmanageable lines of code, by a few orders of magnitude.

Another alternative or supplementary method might be analyzing the binary or bytecode for sprectre family access patterns within segments of code.
