Abstract

Automated feature extraction from program source-code such that proper computing resources could beallocated to the program is very difficult given the current state of technology. Therefore, conventionalmethods call for skilled human intervention in order to achieve the task of feature extraction from programs.This research is the first to propose a novel human-inspired approach to automatically convert programsource-codes to visual images. The images could be then utilized for automated classification by visualconvolutional neural network (CNN) based algorithm. Experimental results show high prediction accuracyin classifying the types of program in a completely automated manner using this approach.
