Search-based inference of dialect grammars

Massimiliano Di Penta, Pierpaolo Lombardi, Kunal Taneja, Luigi Troiano
2007 Soft Computing - A Fusion of Foundations, Methodologies and Applications  
This paper describes an approach, based on genetic algorithms, for evolving existing grammars towards target (dialect) grammars, inferring changes from examples written using the dialect.  ...  Results obtained experimenting the inference of C dialect rules show that the algorithm is able to successfully evolve the grammar.  ...  dialect to be inferred.  ...

A survey of grammatical inference in software engineering

Andrew Stevenson, James R. Cordy
2014 Science of Computer Programming  
Grammatical inference -used successfully in a variety of fields such as pattern recognition, computational biology and natural language processing -is the process of automatically inferring a grammar by  ...  We introduce the theory of grammatical inference and review the state of the art as it relates to software engineering.  ...  MDL is used as a measure of grammar simplicity, and beam search is used to more e ciently search the solution space of possible grammars.  ...

Excerpts from the TXL Cookbook [chapter]

James R. Cordy
2011 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While source transformation systems and languages like DMS, Stratego, ASF + SDF, Rascal and TXL provide a general, powerful base from which to attack a wide range of analysis, transformation and migration  ...  In essence this paper presents the beginnings of a "TXL Cookbook" of recipes for effectively using TXL, and to some extent other similar tools, in a range of common source processing and analysis problems  ...  This is the base case of the inductive inference algorithm. Paradigm. Inductive transformation.  ...

EMBEDDING DSLS INTO GPLS: A GRAMMATICAL INFERENCE APPROACH *

Dejan Hrnčič, Marjan Mernik, Barrett R. Bryant
2011 Information Technology and Control  
Grammatical inference can be used for grammar extraction from input examples. A memetic algorithm for grammatical inference, named MAGIc, was implemented to extract grammar from DSL examples.  ...  From the results it can be concluded that MAGIc is successful for DSL embedding and that the inference process is improved with use of negative examples.  ...  MAGIc Memetic Algorithm for Grammatical Inference (MAGIc) is a memetic algorithm [23] , which is a population-based evolutionary algorithm with local search.  ...

Lexical Ambiguity in Arabic Information Retrieval: The Case of Six Web-Based Search Engines

Abdulfattah Omar, Mohammed Aldawsari
2020 International Journal of English Linguistics  
Search engines should also be adapted to the geographic location of the users in order to address the issue of vernacular dialects of Arabic.  ...  For this purpose, the performances of six search engines Google, Bing, Baidu, Yahoo, Yandex, and Ask are evaluated.  ...  The underlying principle of ontology-based techniques has been that searches in IT should be based on meaning and inference rather than on literal strings.  ...
