Case-based problem-solving systems rely on similarity assessment to select stored cases whose solutions are easily adaptable to t current problems. However, widely-used similarity assessment strategies, such as evaluation of semantic similarity, can be poor predictors of adaptability. As a result, systems may select cases that are di cult or impossible for them to adapt, even when easily adaptable cases are available in memory. This paper presents a new similarity assessment approach which… CONTINUE READING
