A probabilistic examplar based model (1998)
Thesis
Rodriguez Martinez, A. A probabilistic examplar based model. (Thesis). University of Salford

A central problem in case based reasoning (CBR) is how to store and retrieve cases. One approach to this problem is to use exemplar based models, where only the prototypical cases are stored. However, the development of an exemplar based model (EB... Read More about A probabilistic examplar based model.
