An automatic programming system is distinguished from a conventional programming system by its use of an explicit semantic model of the application domain to structure the dialogue between the system and the user, to understand the users responses, and to translate these into actions. The major differences between the design effort reported here and the projects main focuses and other automatic programming projects are first, its independence of any particular domain and its dialogue-driven acquisition of the domain to produce a Loose Model second, the informal and typically ill-structured manner in which both this Loose Model and the task to be programmed are specified and their translation into a directly interpretable Precise Model.
