Distributed Cases for Case-Based Reasoning; Facilitating Use of Multiple Cases

Michael Redmond

A case-based reasoner can frequently benefit from using pieces of multiple previous cases in the course of solving a single problem. In our model, case pieces, called snippets, are organized around the pursuit of a goal, and there are links between the pieces that preserve the structure of reasoning. The advantages of our representational approach include: 1) The steps taken in a previous case can be followed as long as they are relevant, since the connections between steps are preserved. 2) There is easy access to all parts of previous cases, so they can be directly accessed when appropriate.
