TUTORIAL ON CASE-BASED REASONING TOOLS
Chair: Professor Thomas Roth-Berghofer
In a nutshell, case-based reasoning (CBR) is a paradigm for combining problem-solving and learning. It is a successful, applied subfield of AI. CBR is able to utilise the specific knowledge of previously experienced, concrete problem situations (cases). A new problem is solved by finding a similar past case, and by reusing its solution in the new problem situation. myCBR and COLIBRI Studio are two open-source platforms offering different, but complementing features.
myCBR is an open-source similarity-based retrieval tool and software development kit (SDK). With myCBR Workbench, you can model and test highly sophisticated, knowledge-intensive similarity measures in a powerful GUI and easily integrate them into your own applications using the myCBR SDK.
COLIBRI Studio is the implementation of the top layer of the COLIBRI platform. It provides the visual builder tools required to generate CBR systems without dealing directly with the source code. COLIBRI Studio is integrated into the popular Eclipse IDE.
This tutorial will highlight and showcase some features of the two platforms and introduce their application.
