Computer-Based Diagnostics and Systematic Analysis of Knowledge
Abductive reasoning includes discovering new hypotheses or explanations. This chapter identifies several factors involved in abductive reasoning in an effort to move toward a theory of such reasoning. The chapter has an ultimate focus on the nature and influence of similarity. A major goal of our work is to develop computational tools that provide intelligent abductive suggestions to people engaged in discovering new knowledge. Novel abductive inferences often exhibit interesting similaritiesdoi:10.1007/978-1-4419-5662-0_11 fatcat:ftw24mlrvnebjd32castglndhm
