Abstract

This paper describes an implementation of a shell-like programming interface that utilizes referential context (that is, information about the current state of an interfaced application) in order to achieve accurate recognition - even in user-defined domains with no available domain-specific training corpora. The interface incorporates a knowledge of context into its model of syntax, yielding a referential semantic language model. Interestingly, the referential semantic language model exploits context dynamically, unlike other recent systems, by using incremental processing and the limited stack memory of an HMM-like time series model.
