Formative Work Toward a Mixed-Initiative Programming Language
Mixed-initiative programming entails collaboration between a computer system, and a human to achieve some desired goal or set of goals. Often these goals change or are amended in real time during the course of program execution. As such, the plans these programs are based on must adapt and evolve to accommodate this iterative process. This thesis collects a literature review of research done in the field of mixed-initiative programs that provides an understanding of the problems faced when attempting to integrate computer systems and human users, a previously published paper with formative work in understanding how humans write programs for other humans, and finally some initial work done to develop an embedded domain specific language for mixed-initiative drone control.
