Using Similar Situations from the Past to Solve a Present Problem
"At the highest level of generality, a general CBR cycle may be described by the following four processes:
- RETRIEVE the most similar case or cases
- REUSE the information and knowledge in that case to solve the problem
- REVISE the proposed solution
- RETAIN the parts of this experience likely to be useful for future problem solving "
"Analogy-based reasoning: This term is sometimes used, as a synonym to case-based reasoning, to describe the typical case-based approach... However, it is also often used to characterize methods that solve new problems based on past cases from a different domain, while typical case-based methods focus on indexing and matching strategies for single-domain cases."
