We study complex case representations in Case-Based Reasoning. It is designed as a step towards multimedia CBR. To some degree this is a survey paper. For this we present a unified approach to solving the problems connected with representations mentioned in the title in a way that has not been considered so far. The most popular form to represent cases is attribute-based representations. However, in practical applications, case problems and solutions are in the first place given in other ways, e.g. by using texts, images, sensor data or speech data. In order to overcome this we introduce a general level structure to allow bridging the gap between bit-oriented low level and the attribute-oriented high level that is accessible to humans as well as CBR systems. The approach is put in the form of a process model.
Michael M. Richter received his Doctoral Degree in Mathematics in 1968 from the University of Freiburg, Germany. He was Professor of Mathematics at the RWTH Aachen from 1975 to 1986 and Professor of Computer Science at the University of Kaiserslautern from 1986 until his retirement in 2003. He was president of the German Association for Mathematical Logic from 1981 to 1985 and served as Scientific Director at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence from 1989 to 1993. Presently he is Adjunct Professor at the University of Calgary, Canada. His main scientific interests are presently Artificial Intelligence and Software Engineering.
