Using CBR to Drive IR

Edwina L. Rissland, Jody J. Daniels
1995 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
We discuss the use of Case-Based Reasoning (CBR) to drive an Information Retrieval (IR) system.  ...  Our approach provides two benefits: it extends the reach of CBR (for retrieval purposes) to much larger corpora, and it enables the injection of knowledge-based techniques into traditional IR.  ...  Acknowledgements We thank Michelle LaMar for the use of her relevance feedback code and providing assistance in building the text collections.  ...
