Analogical Problem Solving
Categories: Inference and Reasoning , Problem Solving
Author(s): Jim Doran
A technique whereby the current problem is solved by retrieving from memory a previously solved similar problem and appropriately adapting that problem's solution. Carbonell has developed a particular version of this technique based on Means/ends Analysis. See also Case-based Reasoning.
