Analogical learning has long been seen as a powerful way of extending the reach of one’s knowledge. We present domain transfer via analogy (DTA) as a method for learning new domain theories via cross-domain analogy. Our model uses analogies between pairs of textbook example problems, or worked solutions, to create a domain mapping between a familiar and a new domain. This mapping allows us to initialize a new domain theory. After this initialization, another analogy is made between the domain… CONTINUE READING
