Joint Modelling of Source Code and Natural Language

Joint Modelling of Source Code and Natural Language


The task is to convert English to code and convert code back into English

A number of use cases can be possible here, automatic generation of test code, comments, docstrings, or maybe more efficient ways to write code / code review.

My goal is to somehow use signals from a compiler (as reinforcement learning rewards / or loss function terms) to assist this modelling.

Here are some recent papers trying to model this.

Paper Number Site
1. Association for Computational Linguistics
2. University of Washington
3. Github

Most of the papers here are 2016/17, so I think this is in a fairly nascent stage at the moment.
