A stochastic model for Case-Based Reasoning

Michael Gr. Voskoglou

Case-Bsed Reasoning (CBR) is a recent theory for problem-solving and learning in computers and people.Broadly construed it is the process of solving new problems based on the solution of similar past problems. In the present paper we introduce an absorbing Markov chain on the main steps of the CBR process.In this way we succeed in obtaining the probabilities for the above process to be in a certain step at a certain phase of the solution of the corresponding problem, and a measure for the efficiency of a CBR system. Examples are given to illustrate our results.
