Learning How to Edit Text

Tessa Lau, Pedro Domingos, and Daniel S. Weld

Programming by demonstration systems acquire procedural knowledge from examples, and then use that knowledge to execute the learned procedure on new instances. We present an architecture, called version space algebra, for learning this type of procedural knowledge, and describe an implemented system for programming by demonstration in the text-editing domain. We present results showing the system’s effectiveness at acquiring procedures from a small number of examples.
