Abstract

Artificial intelligence tools for software engineering: Processing natural language requirements M. Bras & Y. Toussaint Toulouse Cedex, France ABSTRACT In an industrial and technological domain such as space, natural language messages and documents constitute the main medium of information exchange between different kinds of human operators.Through the presentation of the Linguistic Engineering for Software Development project, we focus on specification requirements documents, which are governed by standards and quality criteria and where quality problems may entail different kinds of errors such as inconsistency between documents or even loss of functionality between the initial requirements and the coding phase. To improve quality control of requirements documents,we aim at mastering the linguistic material in order to enable computational extraction and use of the informational content of requirements documents. We propose Linguistic Engineering
