Solving SyGus is hard!**Talk Outline**• Solution Strategies • Conclusions + SyGuS Competition**Solving SyGuS as Active Learning:**Counter-Example Guided Inductive Synthesis Initial examples I Candidate Expression Learning Algorithm Verification Oracle Counterexample Fail Success Concept class: Set E of expressions Examples: Concrete input values**CEGIS Example**• Specification: (x ≤ f(x,y)) & (y ≤ f(x,y)) & (f(x,y) = x | f(x,y) = y) • Set E: All expressions built from x,y,0,1, Comparison, +, If-Then-Else Examples = { } Candidate f(x,y) = x Learning Algorithm Verification Oracle Example (x=0, y=1)**CEGIS Example**• Specification: (x ≤ f(x,y)) & (y ≤ f(x,y)) & (f(x,y) = x | f(x,y) = y) • Set E: All expressions built from x,y,0,1, Comparison, +, If-Then-Else Examples = {(x=0, y=1) } Candidate f(x,y) = y Learning Algorithm Verification Oracle Example (x=1, y=0)**CEGIS Example**• Specification: (x ≤ f(x,y)) & (y ≤ f(x,y)) & (f(x,y) = x | f(x,y) = y) • Set E: All expressions built from x,y,0,1, Comparison, +, If-Then-Else Examples = {(x=0, y=1) (x=1, y=0) (x=0, y=0) (x=1, y=1)} Candidate ITE (x ≤ y, y,x) Learning Algorithm Verification Oracle Success**SyGuS Solutions**• CEGIS approach (Solar-Lezama, Seshia et al) • Related work: Similar strategies for solving quantified formulas and invariant generation • Coming up: Learning strategies based on: • Enumerative (search with pruning): Udupa et al (PLDI’13) • Symbolic (solving constraints): Gulwani et al (PLDI’11) • Stochastic (probabilistic walk): Schkufza et al (ASPLOS’13)**Enumerative Learning**• Find an expression consistent with a given set of concrete examples • Enumerate expressions in increasing size, and evaluate each expression on all concrete inputs to check consistency • Key optimization for efficient pruning of search space (examples): • Expressions e1 and e2 are equivalent if e1(a,b)=e2(a,b) on all concrete values (x=a,y=b) in Examples • Only one representative among equivalent subexpressions needs to be considered for building larger expressions • Fast and robust for learning expressions with ~ 15 nodes**Symbolic Learning**• Each production in the grammar is thought of as a component. Input and Output ports of every component are typed. • Use a constraint solver for both the synthesis and verification steps Term Term Cond ITE >= + Term Cond Term Term Term Term Term Term Term Term Term 0 1 x y • A well-typed loop-free program comprising these component corresponds to an expression DAG from the grammar.**Symbolic Learning**• Start with a library consisting of some number of occurrences of each component. n1 n10 n9 n8 n7 n5 n6 n3 n2 n4 • Synthesis Constraints: • Shape is a DAG, Types are consistent • Spec j[f/e] is satisfied on every concrete input values in Examples 0 y 1 x + y >= ITE x + • Use an SMT solver (Z3) to find a satisfying solution. • If synthesis fails, try increasing the number of occurrences of components in the library in an outer loop**Symbolic Learning - example**• Iteration 1: x • Learned counter-example: <x= -1, y=0>**Symbolic Learning - example**• Iteration 2: x y ≥ ITE x x • Learned counter-example: <x= 0, y=-1>**Symbolic Learning - example**• Iteration 3: x y ≥ ITE x y • Learned counter-example: -**Stochastic Learning**• Idea: Use the Metropolis-Hastings Method to find desired expression e by probabilistic walk on graph where nodes are expressions and edges capture single-edits. …..in simple words: • Let En be the expressions of size n (n picked randomly). • For every expression e in En set Score(e) between 0 and 1(“Extent to which e meets the spec φ”) • Score(e) = exp( - 0.5 Wrong(e)), where Wrong(e) = No of examples in I for which ~ j [f/e] • Score(e) is large when Wrong(e) is small. Expressions e with Wrong(e) = 0 more likely to be chosen in the limit than any other expression**Stochastic Learning**• Initial candidate expression e sampled uniformly from En • When Score(e) = 1, return e • Pick node v in parse tree of e uniformly at random. Replace subtree rooted at e with subtree of same size, sampled uniformly e e’ + + z + z - • With probability min{ 1, Score(e’)/Score(e) }, replace e with e’ • Repeat until finding e’ such that Score(e’) = 1. • Outer loop responsible for updating expression size n y x 1 z**Stochastic Learning - example**• Suppose n = 6 ; there are 768 expressions of size 6 • e = ITE(x ≤ 0,y,x) is picked with probability 1/768 • The condition x ≤ 0 is mutated to y ≤ 0 with probability 1/6 X 1/48 • Suppose the set of concrete examples is: • {(-1,-4),(-1, 3),(-1, 2),(1,1),(1,2)} • Then Score(e)=exp(-0.5X2), and Score(e’)=exp(-0.5X4) • As e’ is replaced with e with probability exp(-0.5X2) • Note that for e’’ = ITE(x<= y,y,x) we have Score(e’’)=1. • Specification: (x ≤ f(x,y)) & (y ≤ f(x,y)) & (f(x,y) = x | f(x,y) = y) • Set E: All expressions built from x,y,0,1, Comparison, +, If-Then-Else**Benchmarks and Implementation**• Prototype implementation of Enumerative/Symbolic/Stochastic CEGIS • Benchmarks: • Bit-manipulation programs from Hacker’s delight • Integer arithmetic: Find max, search in sorted array • Challenge problems such as computing Morton’s number • Multiple variants of each benchmark by varying grammar • Results are not conclusive as implementations are unoptimized, but offers first opportunity to compare solution strategies**Evaluation Summary**• Enumerative CEGIS has best performance, and solves many benchmarks within seconds Potential problem: Synthesis of complex constants • Symbolic CEGIS is unable to find answers on most benchmarks Caveat: Sketch succeeds on many of these • Choice of grammar has impact on synthesis time When E is set of all possible expressions, solvers struggle • None of the solvers succeed on some benchmarks Morton constants, Search in integer arrays of size > 4 • Bottomline: Improving solvers is a great opportunity for research !**Plan for SyGuS-Comp**• Proposed competition of SyGuS solvers at FLoC, July 2014 • Organizers: Alur, Fisman (Penn) and Singh, Solar-Lezama (MIT) • Website: excape.cis.upenn.edu/Synth-Comp.html • Mailing list: synthlib@cis.upenn.edu • Call for participation: • Join discussion to finalize synth-lib format and competition format • Contribute benchmarks • Build a SyGuS solver
