Abstract—With the development of information technology, the scale of current software is growing dramatically. This motivates the needs of techniques for intelligent software requirements engineering, which allows for modeling and analyzing requirements formally, rapidly and automatically, avoiding mistakes made by misunderstanding between engineers and users, and saving lots of time and manpower. In this paper, we propose an approach to acquiring requirements automatically, which adopts automated planning techniques and machine learning methods to convert software requirement into an incomplete planning domain. By this approach, we design an algorithm called Intelligent Planning based Requirement Analysis (IPRA), to learn action models with uncertain effects. Furthermore, we obtain a complete planning domain by applying this algorithm and convert it into software requirement specification.
