In the classroom you will find many
resources to help you learn more about Case-Based Reasoning. These range from introductory
papers and presentations to more advanced topics. If you have material which you think is
suitable for this classroom please tell us by submitting the ai-cbr
Information Form. In the long term ai-cbr plans to compile a resource for educators
and students, which would include lecture notes, presentation materials, software,
assignments and projects.
maintains a list of ML and related courses.
|Here is a very good short video clip
(RealMedia format) taken from a BBC 2 Horizon
documentary on AI shown in the mid 1980s. The clip shows Mike Keane, of Inference doing
some knowledge acquisition for a rule-based system and Herbert Dreyfus explaining that
experts don't use rules - they use cases. The neat thing about this clip is it shows how
AI people were thinking about CBR, but back in 1985 they didn't have the technology to do
it or even a name for it!
If you are CBR-newbie a good place to start would be
to look at Case-Based Reasoning: A review. This paper was published in The
Knowledge Engineering Review in 1994. An HTML version of
this paper is available for online reading.
A good introductory text book is Applying Case-Based Reasoning - techniques for enterprise systems.
has prepared an excellent introductory CBR slide
A variety of other introductory papers and
presentations are available on the web:
- Case-based reasoning:
Foundational issues, methodological variations, and system approaches (Agnar
Aamodt & Enric Plaza, AI-Communications, 1994)
- Case-Based Reasoning
(David W. Aha, ARIES-94 Invited Talk)
- Reasoning with
Cases - Theory and Practice (Klaus-Dieter Althoff, Stefan Wess, & Michel
Manago, ECAI'94 Tutorial)
- Ilesh Dattani's CBR Tutorial at the
1996 British Computer Society Expert Systems Conference (in MS PowerPoint)
- CBR: Issues,
Methods, and Technology (David Leake, ICCBR-95 Tutorial)
Containers (Michael Richter, summary plus slides of his ICCBR-95 invited talk) -
this is essential viewing, until we can persuade Michael to write this up as a full paper
ALL CBR students should look at this and think (hard) about the ideas the talk contains.
