Interactive AI Magazine

Ian Watson, Rosina O Weber, David Leake Case-based reasoning is reasoning from experience, solving new problems and interpreting new situations by retrieving and adapting prior cases. The Twenty-Eight International Conference on Case-Based Reasoning (ICCBR2020) was held from June 8-12, 2020, with program chairs Ian Watson and Rosina Weber. The conference was originally scheduled for Salamanca, Spain, a World Heritage site, under the auspices of local chair Juan Manuel Corchado and the University of Salamanca. Its theme, "CBR Across Bridges", reflected the goal of bringing together researchers and practitioners with relevant work across various AI areas. Before the conference, the pandemic struck, with tragic effects. The conference chairs resolved to continue with a safe alternative: the first virtual ICCBR. With researchers unable to travel, the virtual conference not only bridged AI areas but geographic ones: 141 conference attendees participated from 23 countries.
