A Probabilistic Approach for Automatically Filling Form-Based Web Interfaces

Free registration required

Executive Summary

In this paper, the authors present a proposal for the implementation and evaluation of a novel method for automatically using data-rich text for filling form-based input interfaces. Their solution takes a text as input, extracts implicit data values from it and fills appropriate fields. For this task, they rely on knowledge obtained from values of previous submissions for each field, which are freely obtained from the usage of the interfaces. Their approach, called iForm, exploits features related to the content and the style of these values, which are combined through a Bayesian framework.
