I was co-organizer of the Abbadingo One DFA Learning
Competition, which ended on Nov 15, 1997. If you are interested
in language induction you should have a look. A follow-up continuous
competition called Gowachin has been
running for some years, and is able to automatically track
improvements in the state of the art.
