Join us for our forthcoming Computer Science Mercury talk with speaker Manal Binkhonain in Kilburn L.T 1.5 on Wednesday 20th November 2019 at 2pm

In the last few years, supervised machine learning algorithms have been widely applied to detect and classify non-functional requirements, focusing on providing more automatic analysis for a specific non-functional category (e.g., security). Despite the importance of usability for all interactive systems, few attempts have been made to analyze and classify usability requirements (URs). The challenge is twofold: There are a variety of definitions and classifications of usability concepts, each of which characterizes usability through different aspects and measures. And it is difficult to identify these requirements due to the cross-cutting nature of URs and the ambiguity inherent in natural language text. In this talk, we will present our ongoing experiments toward using machine learning algorithms to fully automate the process of classifying and analyzing URs written in natural documents. Our results are compared with other baseline approaches and existing works.
