Re: [case-based-reasoning] question-help me please!
- Dear Nina,
the term expert system was popular in the 1980ies. There was no definition but it was understood as a program in a declarative programming language or at least in a declarative programming style. In particular, the knowledge was not incorportated implicitly in an algorithm but explicitly in a knowledge base. Many expert systems where rule based. Later on this was extended, e.g. to interactive systems where the program was a partner to humans. Also, the name changed to knowledge based system.
Initially, these systems borrowed there philosophy from logical systems.: Clear input the result was a logical con sequence of the input.
Later on one was interested in approximative solutions of problems. They are not absolutely true but more or less useful. This was measured by similarity measures. It occurs in particular when using solution from previous experiences (called cases). The techniques have been generalized to more "similarity based systems". Here also techniques from cognitive science have been employed.
