CECoS: a case experience combination system for knowledge acquisition for expert systems.
Behavior research methods, instruments & computers 23 (2), pp. 142-148.
This paper presents a new knowledge-acquisition system—the Case Experience Combination System (CECoS). With CECoS, two information or knowledge sources are jointly analyzed. Previously recorded problem solutions (individual cases) are combined with an expert’s high-level understanding of the global structure of a task domain. By combining the detailed case information with an expert’s general insights, CECoS provides the domain knowledge with which-skeletal plans can be automatically constructed.
