Purpose-Directed Analogy: A Summary of Current Research
Existing techniques for analogical reasoning are based on mapping some underlying causal network of relations between analogous situations. However, causal relations relevant for the purpose of one analogy may be irrelevant for another. We describe here a technique which uses an explicit representation of the purpose of the analogy to automatically create the relevant causal network.
