  • Applying machine learning to programming by demonstration

    Paynter, Gordon W.; Witten, Ian H.; Koblitz, Neil; Powell, Matthew (Taylor & Francis, 2004)
    ‘Familiar’ is a tool that helps end-users automate iterative tasks in their applications by showing examples of what they want to do. It observes the user’s actions, predicts what they will do next, and then offers to ...
  • Automating iterative tasks with programming by demonstration

    Paynter, Gordon W. (The University of Waikato, 2000)
    Programming by demonstration is an end-user programming technique that allows people to create programs by showing the computer examples of what they want to do. Users do not need specialised programming skills. Instead, ...
  • Automating iterative tasks with programming by demonstration: a user evaluation

    Paynter, Gordon W.; Witten, Ian H. (1999-05)
    Computer users often face iterative tasks that cannot be automated using the tools and aggregation techniques provided by their application program: they end up performing the iteration by hand, repeating user interface ...
  • Browsing in digital libraries: a phrase-based approach

    Nevill-Manning, Craig G.; Witten, Ian H.; Paynter, Gordon W. (1997-01)
    A key question for digital libraries is this: how should one go about becoming familiar with a digital collection, as opposed to a physical one? Digital collections generally present an appearance which is extremely opaque-a ...
  • A combined phrase and thesaurus browser for large document collections

    Paynter, Gordon W.; Witten, Ian H. (Springer Berlin, 2001)
    A browsing interface to a document collection can be constructed automatically by identifying the phrases that recur in the full text of the documents and structuring them into a hierarchy based on lexical inclusion. This ...
