What is Case Based Reasoning?

Thursday, December 20, 2007 | Labels: | |

Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) is a problem solving model that is fundamentally different from other major Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques.

CBR does not rely solely on the general knowledge of a problem domain. CBR is able to make use of the specific knowledge of previously experienced concrete problem situations. These previous situations are referred to as cases in CBR.

CBR uses an incremental approach to sustained learning, since a new experience is retained each time a problem has been solved, making it available for future problems.

In the next post, we will see how to solve problems using CBR.
