A CONNEXIONIST APPROACH FOR CASE BASED REASONING

Abstract

Case Based Learning is an approach to automatic learning and reasoning based on the use of the knowledge gained in past experiences to solve new problems. To suggest a solution for a new problem it is necessary to search for similar problems in the base of problems for which we know their solutions. After selecting one or more similar problems their solutions are used to elaborate a suggested solution for the new problem. Associative memories recover patterns based on their similarity with a new input pattern. This behaviour made them useful to store the base of cases of a Case Based Reasoning system. In this paper we analyze the use of a special model of associative memory named CCLAM (Bailón et al., 2002) with this objective. To test the potentiality of the tool we will discuss its use in a particular application: the detection of the “health” of a company.
