Andronico A., Stock O. Grammatical inference for communications protocols. Internal note IEI-B79-32, 1979.
 
 
Abstract
(English)
Communication processes are ruled by protocols. Knowing particular protocols allows a machine to take an active part in a communication process, i.e. permits compatibility. In the case of laws of communication not immediately being available, it makes sense that they could be learned from observation of samples of communication between compatible stations. A program for inference of line protocols is here proposed which treats the problem as a linguistic one. The process of learning is carried on with parallel analysis of the sample communication strings, and in this it is more similar to learning from a book than learning from a speaker. Furthermore, as the program is implemented on microcomputer, backtracking is limited to the strictly necessary cases, and the construction of the grammar goes on with successive consolidations.
