Judge: A Case-based Reasoning System
People tend to improve their abilities to reason about situations by amassing experiences in reasoning. The more situations which a person knows about, the more able he is to account for feature differences between a new input and old knowledge. A computer program which can improve its ability to reason must also have access to situations which it has previously analyzed or reasoned about. Previous experiences thus require some mechanism for orderly storage and retrieval. The inability to save accounts of previous experiences for future application and modification represents a serious shortcoming of most, if not all, rule-based expert systems.
