Abstract

Manual classification methods of metamodel repositories require highly trained personnel and the results are usually influenced by the subjectivity of human perception. Therefore, automated metamodel classification is very desirable and stringent. In this work, Machine Learning techniques have been employed for metamodel automated classification. In particular, a tool implementing a feed-forward neural network is introduced to classify metamodels. An experimental evaluation over a dataset of 555 metamodels demonstrates that the technique permits to learn from manually classified data and effectively categorize incoming unlabeled data with a considerably high prediction rate: the best performance comprehends 95.40% as success rate, 0.945 as precision, 0.938 as recall, and 0.942 as F1 score.
