  • Case-Based Reasoning in Scheduling: Reusing Solution Components 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1996-08)
    In this paper we explore the reuse of components of known good schedules in new scheduling problems. This involves accumulating a case-base of good quality schedules, retrieving a case (or cases) similar to a new scheduling ...
  • A Case-Based Reasoning View of Automated Collaborative Filtering 

    Hayes, Conor; Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 2001-03)
    From some perspectives Automated Collaborative Filtering (ACF) appears quite similar to Case-Based Reasoning (CBR). It works on data organised around users and assets that might be considered case descriptions. In addition, ...
  • CBR in Scheduling: Reusing Solution Components 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1995-06)
    In this paper we explore the reuse of components of known good schedules in new scheduling problems. This involves accumulating a case-base of good quality schedules, retrieving a case (or cases) similar to a new ...
  • CBR Net :- Smart Technology over a Network 

    Doyle, Michelle; Hayes, Conor; Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1998-06)
    CBR (case-based reasoning) has considerable potential for developing intelligent assistants for the World Wide Web. We examine intelligent applications already existent online and find that they can be divided into agent ...
  • A Comparison of Incremental Case-Based Reasoning and Inductive Learning 

    Smyth, Barry; Cunningham, Padraig (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1994-11)
    This paper focuses on problems where the reuse of old solutions seems appropriate but the conventional CBR methodology is not adequate because a complete description of the new problem is not available to trigger ...
  • A Comparison of Model-Based and Incremental Case-Based Approaches to Electronic Fault Diagnosis 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1994-12)
    CBR seems well suited to fault diagnosis because diagnostic episodes naturally form cases and much of expert competence seems to be based on reuse of old solutions. However, in many diagnosis problems it is difficult ...
  • Complexity of Adaptation in Real-World Case-Based Reasoning Systems 

    Smyth, Barry; Cunningham, Padraig (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-09)
    The essence of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) as a problem solving paradigm is that solutions are generated by adapting the solutions of similar problems rather than solving the problem from first principles. In this paper ...
  • Design Synthesis: A Model of Hierarchical Case-Based Reasoning 

    Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-12)
    A variety of artificial intelligence techniques have been used in attempts to automate design synthesis tasks. Two common approaches are case-based and decompositional design. While powerful techniques in their own right, ...
  • Experiments in Adaptation-Guided Retrieval in Case-Based Design 

    Smyth, Barry; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1994-12)
    Case-based reasoning (CBR) has been applied with some success to complex planning and design tasks. In such systems, the best case is retrieved and adapted to solve a particular target problem. In general, the best case ...
  • Hierarchical Case-Based Reasoning: Integrating Case-Based and Decompositional Problem-Solving Techniques for Plant-Control Software Design 

    Smyth, Barry; Cunningham, Padraig; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1997)
    Case-based reasoning (CBR) is an AI technique that emphasises the role of past experience during future problem solving. New problems are solved by retrieving and adapting the solutions to similar problems, solutions ...
  • An Incremental Retrieval Mechanism for Case-Based Electronic Fault Diagnosis 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Bonzano, Andrea (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1998-09)
    One problem with using CBR for diagnosis is that a full case description may not be available at the beginning of the diagnosis. The standard CBR methodology requires a detailed case description in order to perform case ...
  • On the Limitations of Memory Based Reasoning 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Veale, Tony (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1994-11)
    Memory-Based Reasoning (MBR) represents a radical new departure in AI research. Whereas work in symbolic AI is based on inference and knowledge representation MBR depends on using a large memory of examples as a reasoning ...
  • On the use of CBR in optimisation problems such as the TSP 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Hurley, Neil (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1995-06)
    The particular strength of CBR is normally considered to be its use in weak theory domains where solution quality is compiled into cases and is reusable. In this paper we explore an alternative use of CBR in optimisati ...
  • Retrieval Issues in Real-World CBR Applications How far can we go with discrimination-nets? 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Cahill, Eamonn (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1992-10)
    In this paper we present a proposition and ponder a question. We propose that a useful perspective on analogical reasoning and CBR is to consider them on a continuum of abstraction of remindings. This is an alternative ...
  • Retrieval Issues in Real-World CBR Applications How far can we go with discrimination-nets? 

    Cunningham, Padraig; Smyth, Barry; Finn, Donal; Cahill, Eamonn (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1993-06)
    We propose that analogical reasoning and case based reasoning (CBR) tasks can be usefully characterised as a continuum reflecting the remoteness of the remindings involved. Remindings in CBR are generally between semantically ...
  • Retrieving Reusable Design Cases: Exploiting Adaptation Knowledge in Design Reuse 

    Smyth, Barry; Keane, Mark T. (Trinity College Dublin, Department of Computer Science, 1994-11)
    Case-based reasoning has been identified as a potentially fruitful candidate technology with which to investigate the development of automated design systems. Two critical stages in case-based design are design retrieval ...
