Nested-Graph structured representations for cases



This paper describes an approach to representing cases as nested
graph-structures, i.e., as hierarchically, spatially, temporally and causally interconnected
nodes (case nodes), which may be themselves recursively described
by other sets of interconnected nodes. Each case node represents a case piece
(sub-case). An adjacency matrix may represent these nested graph-structured
cases. Within our approach, new cases are constructed using an iterative context-
guided retrieval of case nodes from multiple cases. In order to illustrate the
expressiveness of this case representation approach, we discuss its application
to the diagnosis and therapeutics of neurological diseases, to architectural design
and to storytelling. Some issues that come out of this approach, like its
contribution to the representation of cases of CBR and to integrate ordinary and
creative reasoning, are discussed.
