Some early text analysis methods, such as LSI, work strictly on the bag of words (BOW) and are immune from this problem. In LSI, a term-document matrix is created using all the available documents, and the dimension of the matrix (specifically, the no. of terms in that matrix) is reduced using singular value decomposition (SVD) while preserving the similarity structure among the documents. Ways of measuring similarity on a text-based level. Furthermore, along with measuring a developer’s similarity to the technologies they use as attempted in previous work, we also aim to use the APIs to measure the similarity between developers, projects, developers and projects, and projects and APIs as well. Specifically, we considered two types of embeddings: Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) and Doc2Vec because the first is conceptually very simple and scalable, and the second because it is capable of embedding not only the APIs themselves but also developers and projects. The primary assumption behind LSI is the distributional hypothesis (Harris, 1954), which states that words (APIs) that are close in meaning (functionality) will occur in similar pieces of document (file), which is valid in our context as well. In the context of our problem, a document refers to a developer or a project, and the terms correspond to the APIs used by that developer/ in that project. The primary assumption of Word2Vec is that only words that are close together in a document are semantically related, but in our context, that assumption doesn’t hold, because there is no semantic order for the APIs used by a developer or a project.
Once again, we used the Gensim framework for evaluation due to its high performance. Table 1 shows the number of delta (blobs) associated with each language as well as the number of distinct authors and projects involved. Table 2 shows the fraction of delta for each languages where the number of distinct APIs is less than 10, 25, and 50 and also shows the maximum number of APIs. The Right Tools and Programming Languages for Any Job In the distant past, developers were generally forced to stick to a few low-level programming languages that closely followed the contours of the computer hardware they were designed to work with. Please not that many authors make changes to several languages (and many projects involve multiple languages), so the right tow columns do not add up to the number of distinct authors or projects. Projects in WoC (because two projects are highly unlikely to share the same exact commit unless they are clones). As is often the case with datasets of this size, certain data cleaning steps are important in order to accurately perform any analysis. Doc2Vec is an extension of Word2Vec, where in addition to word (API) embeddings, the model also produces the embeddings for an arbitrary set of tags associated with a group of APIs, as is the case when an author, a project, and a language is associated with the set of APIs extracted from each change of every file.

The methods used in all studies were also extracted (Figure 3 (b)). So for example, that model might learn that if the recognizer thinks it just recognized “the dog” and now it’s trying to figure out what the next word is, it may know that “ran” is more likely than “pan” or “can” as the next word just because of what we know about the usage of language in English. Figure 7 presents the answers given by the evaluators to different questions about the proposed risk analysis tool. Greenstone seems to believe what I’d tend to agree with: that after all of the dust has settled, customers will pay for content that’s worth paying for — he’s just given up on worrying about pricing, and is focused on delivering content that’s worth whatever he wants to charge. One such problem is that a developer who contributes to a highly-cloned project will have their commits appear in the remaining cloned projects as well. Our proposed approach tries to address this gap by constructing a skill space representation that, on one hand, may transcend the specific programming languages, while, on the other hand, it may identify a meaningful representation that can be matched with skill sets of other developers or projects. If you wish your system would run a little faster without compromising how many or which apps you can have open at once, give it a try.
Others, such as continuous bag of words (CBOW), try to predict words within a certain window size. As we note above, the total number of distinct APIs we observe is far higher than the number of words in a natural language putting computational strains on the text analysis methods designed to deal with many orders of magnitude smaller dictionaries. As we noted above, the order of the APIs as they are specified in source code files is not important, hence we need to apply methods that do not attempt to model the sequences. Even more techniques have been applied to model programming language source using text analysis techniques. Thus, the existing techniques that attempt to model the order of the tokens need to be modified, or techniques that do not rely on the ordering of words (APIs) need to be employed. The continuous bag of words analog in Doc2Vec corresponds to obtaining doc-vectors by training a neural network on the synthetic task of predicting a center word based on an average of both context word-vectors and the full documentâs doc-vector. Fry et al., 2020) that resolves the 38 million author identities in WoC version Q by creating blocks of potentially related author IDs (e.g. IDs that share the same email, unique first/last name) and then predicting which IDs actually belong to the same developer using a machine learning model. WoC data is versioned, with the latest version labeled as Q, containing 7.2 billion blobs, 1.8 billion commits, 7.6 billion trees, 16 million tags, 116 million projects (distinct repositories), and 38 million distinct author IDs.
