We present a web interface agent, Woodstein, that monitors user actions on the web and retrieves related information to assemble an integrated view of a transaction. It manages user hypotheses during diagnosis by capturing users' judgments of the correctness of data and processes. These hypotheses can be shared with others, such as customer service representatives, or saved for later. We will see this feature in the context of diagnosing problems on the web

Inspection methods in programming by Charles Rich ( Book )
6 editions published between 1981 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Inspection methods are a kind of engineering problem solving based on the recognition and use of standard forms or {\it clich\'es}. Examples are given of program analysis, program synthesis and program validation by inspection. A formalism, called the Plan Calculus, is defined and used to represent programming clich\'es in a convenient, canonical, and programming-language independent fashion

Pattern-directed invocation with changing equalities by Yishai A Feldman ( Book )
5 editions published between 1988 and 1990 in English and Undetermined and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The interaction of pattern-directed invocation with equality in an automated reasoning system gives rise to a completeness problem. In such systems, a demon needs to be invoked not only when its pattern exactly matches a term in the reasoning data base, but also when it is possible to create a variant that matches. An incremental algorithm has been developed which solves this problem without generating all possible variants of terms in the database. The algorithm is shown to be complete for a class of demons, called {\it transparent} demons, in which there is a well-behaved logical relationship between the pattern and the body of the demon
Intelligent assistance for program recognition, design, optimization, and debugging by Charles Rich ( Book )
4 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The authors describe research in four related areas, based on the following theoretical principles: The assistant approach (incremental automation) and the exploitation of cliches' (using knowledge of common engineering practice). Each investigation involves the construction of a prototype system to provide intelligent assistance for a person performing the task: A recognition assistant will help reconstruct the design of a program, given only its source code. A design assistant will assist a programmer by detecting errors and inconsistencies in his design choices and by automatically making many straightforward implementation decisions. An optimization assistant will help improve the performance of programs by identifying intermediate results that can be reused. A debugging assistant will aid in the detection, localization, and repair of errors in designs as well as completed programs. These prototypes will be constructed using two shared technologies: A programming language independent formal representation for programs and programming knowledge (the Plan Calculus) and an automated reasoning system (CAKE), which supports both general logical reasoning and special-purpose decision procedures. Keywords: Automatic programming, Programmer's apprentice project. (kr)

Initial report on a LISP programmer's apprentice by Charles Rich ( Book )
5 editions published between 1976 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The conceptual basis of the system lies in three forms of program description: (1) definition of structured data objects, their parts, properties, and relations between them, (2) input-output specification of the behavior of program segments (specs), and (3) a hierachical representation of the internal structure of programs (plans). The major theoretical work reported here is a representation for program plans which includes data flow, control flow, and also goal-subgoal prerequisite, and other dependency relationships between the segments of the program.

Formalizing reusable software components in the Programmer's Apprentice by Charles Rich ( Book )
4 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There has been a long-standing desire in computer science for a way of collecting and using libraries of standard software components. The limited success in actually doing this stems not from any resistance to the idea, nor from any lack of trying, but rather from the difficulty of choosing an appropriate formalism for representing components. For a formalism to be maximally useful, it must satisfy five key desiderata: expressiveness, convenient combinability, semantic soundness, machine manipulability, and programming language independence. The Plan Calculus formalism developed as part of the Programmer's Apprentice project satisfies each of these desiderata quite well. It does this by combining the ideas from flowchart schemas, data abstraction, logical formalisms, and program transformations. The efficacy of the Plan Calculus has been demonstrated in part by a prototype program editor called the Knowledge-based Editor in Emacs. This editor makes it possible for a programmer to construct a program rapidly and reliably by combining components represented as plans
Computer aided evolutionary design for software engineering by Charles Rich ( Book )
3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This memorandum reports on a partially implemented interactive computer aided-design tool for software engineering. A distinguishing characteristic of this project is its concern for the evolutionary character of software systems. It draws a distinction between algorithms and systems, centering its attention on support for the system designer. Although verification has played a large role in recent research, this perspective suggests that the complexity and evolutionary nature of software systems require a number of additional techniques. Managing of complexity is a fundamental issue in all engineering disciplines. The authors identify three major techniques used in mature engineering fields which seem applicable to the engineering of software systems: incremental modelling; multiple and almost hierachical decomposition; and analysis by inspection. Along these lines they have (1) Constructed a plan library to aid in analysis by inspection (the analysis of a program based on identifying standard algorithms and methods in it); (2) Identified a small set of plan building methods which can be used to decompose a softwre system into loosely coupled subsystems; (3) Developed the technique of temporal abstraction which makes it possible to model a program from a viewpoint which clearly separates the actions of generations and consumers of data; and (4) Developed a dependency-based reasoning system uniquely suited to incremental and evolutionary program analysis. These methods are substantially language independent and have been applied to programs written in several commonly used languages
Abstraction, inspection and debugging in programming by Charles Rich ( Book )
2 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
We believe that software engineering has much to learn from other mature engineering disciplines, such as electrical engineering, and that the problem solving behaviors of engineers in different disciplines have many similarities. Three key ideas in current artificial intelligence theories of engineering problem solving are: Abstraction -- using a simplified view of the problem to guide the problem solving process. Inspection -- problem solving by recognizing the form ('plan') of a solution. Debugging -- incremental modification of an almost satisfactory solution to a more satisfactory one. These three techniques are typically used together in a paradigm which we call AID (for Abstraction, Inspection, Debugging): First an abstract model of the problem is constructed in which some important details are intentionally omitted. In this simplified view inspection methods are more likely to succeed, yielding the initial form of a solution. Further details of the problem are then added one at a time with corresponding incremental modifications to the solution. This paper states the goals and milestones of the remaining three years of a five year research project to study the fundamental principles underlying the design and construction of large software systems and to demonstrate the feasibility of a computer aided design tool for this purpose, called the programmers apprentice.

The Programmer's Apprentice project : a research overview by Charles Rich ( Book )
3 editions published between 1987 and 1988 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The goal of the Programmer's Apprentice project is to develop a theory of how expert programmers analyze, synthesize, modify, explain, specify, verify, and document programs. This research goal overlaps both artificial intelligence and software engineering. From the viewpoint of artificial intelligence, we have chosen programming as a domain in which to study fundamental issues of knowledge representation and reasoning. From the viewpoint of software engineering, we seek to automate the programming process by applying techniques from artificial intelligence

Toward a requirements apprentice : on the boundary between informal and formal specifications by Charles Rich ( Book )
2 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Requirements acquisition is one of the most important and least well supported parts of the software development process. The Requirements Apprentice (RA) will assist a human analyst in the creation and modification of software requirements. Unlike current requirements analysis tools, which assume a formal description language, the focus of the RA is on the boundary between informal and formal specifications. The RA is intended to support the earliest phases of creating a requirement, in which incompleteness, ambiguity, and contradiction are inevitable features. From an artificial intelligence perspective, the central problem the RA faces is one of knowledge acquisition. It has to develop a coherent internal representation from an initial set of disorganized statements. To do so, the RA will rely on a variety of techniques, including dependency-directed reasoning, hybrid knowledge representation, and the reuse of common forms (cliche's). The Requirements Apprentice is being developed in the context of the Programmer's Apprentice project, whose overall goal is the creation of an intelligent assistant for all aspects of software development
