In this paper we show how case-based reasoning techniques can be used to extract and reuse solutions previously found by a heuristic (a genetic algorithm in our case) used to solve problems in a specific domain (MSI and SSI combinational circuit design). This reuse of partially built solutions allows us to improve convergence time of our heuristic since the(More)
In this paper, we propose a case-based reasoning scheme in which we extract domain knowledge (in the form of design patterns) from a genetic algorithm used to optimize combinational logic circuits at the gate level. Such information is used in two ways: first, we show how the selection pressure of the genetic algorithm is biased by Boolean simplification(More)
In this study we further investigated processes of auditory restoration (AR) in recently described stimulus types: the so-called gap-transfer stimulus, the shared-gap stimulus and the pseudo-continuous stimulus. The stimuli typically consist of two crossing sounds of unequal duration. In the shared-gap and pseudo-continuous stimuli, the two crossing sounds(More)
The Oreja software package (available from www.liv.ac.uk/psychology/Downloads/Oreja.htm) was designed to study speech intelligibility. It is a tool that allows manipulation of speech signals to facilitate study of human speech perception. A feature of this package is that it uses a high-level interpreted scripting environment (MATLAB), allowing the user to(More)
