The Case-Based Reasoning Group

Welcome to the CBR Web Server

The Case-Based Reasoning Group is part of the Department of Computer Science at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. You can find specific information here about our research, publications, abstracts, and personnel.


Research in Professor Edwina Rissland's CBR Group deals with case-based reasoning (CBR), AI and Legal Reasoning, CBR and machine learning, CBR and information retrieval, and CBR and scheduling. Current research projects include projects to investigate the use of multiple case representation and indexing schemes in precedent-based CBR, the effect of high level reasoning goals on supporting CBR tasks and vice versa in a mixed paradigm blackboard-based architecture, the use of CBR for generation of retrieval strategies in the context of information retrieval, and the automatic selection of parameters for dynamic scheduling problems.
