Research on explanation in Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) is a topic that gains momentum. In this context, fundamental issues on what are and to which end do we use explanations have to be reconsidered. This article presents a prelimenary outline of the combination of two recently proposed classifications of explanations based on the type of the explanation itself and user goals which should be fulfilled. 1 What do We Need Explanations for? The more complex knowledge-based systems get, the more… Expand
Explanation in Case-Based Reasoning–Perspectives and Goals
TLDR
A framework for explanation in case-based reasoning (CBR) based on explanation goals is presented, and ways that the goals of the user and system designer should be taken into account when deciding what is a good explanation for a given CBR system are proposed. Expand
Explanation Capabilities of the Open Source Case-Based Reasoning Tool myCBR
This paper describes the various explanation capabilities of the open source case-based reasoning tool myCBR. myCBR features conceptual explanations, which provide information about concepts of theExpand
Rapid Prototyping of CBR Applications
TLDR
This paper presents a novel, freely available tool for rapid prototyping of CBR applications that focuses on the similarity-based retrieval step, like for example case-based product recommender systems. Expand
Rapid Prototyping of CBR Applications with the Open Source Tool myCBR
Although Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) claims to reduce the effort required for developing knowledge-based systems substantially compared with more traditional Artificial Intelligence approaches, theExpand
Explanation-Aware Design of Mobile myCBR-Based Applications
TLDR
The available knowledge for explanation generation within context-aware CBR systems is examined and the different requirements for the integration of explanation capabilities into myCBR for the two types of knowledge are distinguished. Expand
A Case-Based Reasoning System to Forecast the Presence Of Oil Slicks
TLDR
The system presented here forecasts the presence or not of oil slicks in a certain area of the open sea after an oil spill using Case-Based Reasoning methodology, which is a computational methodology designed to generate solutions to a certain problem by analysing previous solutions given to previous solved problems. Expand
A new CBR approach to the oil spill problem
TLDR
The system presented here forecasts the presence or not of oil slicks in a certain area of the open sea after an oil spill using Case-Based Reasoning methodology, a computational methodology designed to generate solutions to a certain problem by analysing previous solutions given to previous solved problems.

TLDR
This book presents a selection of recent progress, issues, and directions for the future of case-based reasoning, and experimentally examines one of the fundamental tenets of CBR, that reasoning from prior experiences improves performance. Expand
Explanation in second generation expert systems
TLDR
Two major developments that have differentiated explanation in second generation systems from explanation in first generation systems are described: new architectures have been developed that capture more of the knowledge that is needed for explanation, and more powerful explanation generators have beendeveloped in which explanation generation is viewed as a problem-solving activity in its own right.
