DSL::English::ClassificationWorkflows (Raku package)

In brief

This Raku (Perl 6) package has grammar classes and action classes for the parsing and interpretation of natural Domain Specific Language (DSL) commands that specify classification workflows.

The interpreters (actions) target different programming languages: Python, R, Raku, Wolfram Language (WL), and others. Also, different natural languages.

Currently, the generated pipelines are for the software monad "ClCon" implemented in WL, [AAp1], and WL's built-in commands.

Remark: "ClCon" stands for "Classification using a Context".

Remark: "WL" stands for "Wolfram Language". "Mathematica" and "WL" are used as synonyms.


Zef ecosystem:

zef install DSL::English::ClassificationWorkflows


zef install https://github.com/antononcube/Raku-DSL-English-ClassificationWorkflows.git


Programming languages

Here is a simple invocation:

use DSL::English::ClassificationWorkflows;

ToClassificationWorkflowCode('make a logistic regression classifier', 'WL::ClCon');
# ClConMakeClassifier[ "LogisticRegression" ]

Here is a more complicated pipeline specification used to generate the code for two WL classification systems:

my $command = q:to/END/;
use dfTitanic;
split the data with ratio 0.73;
create a logistic regression classifier;
show precision and recall;
show top confusions, misclassified examples, least certain examples;
show ROC plots;

say $_.key, "\n", $_.value, "\n"  for ($_ => ToClassificationWorkflowCode($command, $_ ) for <WL::ClCon WL::System>);
# WL::ClCon
# ClConUnit[ dfTitanic ] \[DoubleLongRightArrow]
# ClConSplitData[ "TrainingFraction" -> 0.73 ] \[DoubleLongRightArrow]
# ClConMakeClassifier[ "LogisticRegression" ] \[DoubleLongRightArrow]
# ClConClassifierMeasurements[ {"Precision", "Recall"} ] \[DoubleLongRightArrow] ClConEchoValue[] \[DoubleLongRightArrow]
# ClConClassifierMeasurements[ {"TopConfusions", "MisclassifiedExamples", "LeastCertainExamples"} ] \[DoubleLongRightArrow] ClConEchoValue[] \[DoubleLongRightArrow]
# ClConROCPlot[]
# WL::System
# data = ClConToNormalClassifierData @ dfTitanic;
# {dataTraining, dataTesting} = TakeDrop[ RandomSample[data], Floor[ 0.73 * Length[data] ] ];
# dataValidation = Automatic;
# clObj = Classify[ dataTraining, Method -> "LogisticRegression", ValidationSet -> dataValidation ];
# Echo @ ClassifierMeasurements[clObj, dataTesting, {"Precision", "Recall"} ];
# Echo @ ClassifierMeasurements[clObj, dataTesting, {"TopConfusions", "MisclassifiedExamples", "LeastCertainExamples"} ];
# Echo @ ROCPlot[]

Natural languages

Command line interface

The package provides Command Line Interface (CLI) for its functionalities:

ToClassificationWorkflowCode --help
# Translates natural language commands into classification programming code.
# Usage:
#   ToClassificationWorkflowCode <command> [--target=<Str>] [--language=<Str>] [--format=<Str>] [-c|--clipboard-command=<Str>] -- Translates natural language commands into (machine learning) classification workflow programming code.
#   ToClassificationWorkflowCode <target> <command> [--language=<Str>] [--format=<Str>] [-c|--clipboard-command=<Str>] -- Both target and command as arguments.
#   ToClassificationWorkflowCode [<words> ...] [-t|--target=<Str>] [-l|--language=<Str>] [-f|--format=<Str>] [-c|--clipboard-command=<Str>] -- Command given as a sequence of words.
#     <command>                       A string with one or many commands (separated by ';').
#     --target=<Str>                  Target (programming language with optional library spec.) [default: 'WL-ClCon']
#     --language=<Str>                The natural language to translate from. [default: 'English']
#     --format=<Str>                  The format of the output, one of 'automatic', 'code', 'hash', or 'raku'. [default: 'automatic']
#     -c|--clipboard-command=<Str>    Clipboard command to use. [default: 'Whatever']
#     <target>                        Programming language.
#     [<words> ...]                   Words of a data query.
#     -t|--target=<Str>               Target (programming language with optional library spec.) [default: 'WL::ClCon']
#     -l|--language=<Str>             The natural language to translate from. [default: 'English']
#     -f|--format=<Str>               The format of the output, one of 'automatic', 'code', 'hash', or 'raku'. [default: 'automatic']
# Details:
#     If --clipboard-command is the empty string then no copying to the clipboard is done.
#     If --clipboard-command is 'Whatever' then:
#         1. It is attempted to use the environment variable CLIPBOARD_COPY_COMMAND.
#             If CLIPBOARD_COPY_COMMAND is defined and it is the empty string then no copying to the clipboard is done.
#         2. If the variable CLIPBOARD_COPY_COMMAND is not defined then:
#             - 'pbcopy' is used on macOS
#             - 'clip.exe' on Windows
#             - 'xclip -sel clip' on Linux.


The original version of this Raku package was developed/hosted at [ AAp2 ].

A dedicated GitHub repository was made in order to make the installation with Raku's zef more direct. (As shown above.)
