I am happy and excited to report that Case-Based Reasoning research is becoming a prominent research topic in Kaiserslautern again. The German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence DFKI GmbH has founded the Competence Center CBR under the lead of Klaus-Dieter Althoff, professor at the University of Hildesheim.
CBR was an important research topic at the University of Kaiserslautern at the research group of Prof. Michael M. Richter until his retirement in 2003. At the knowledge management research department and the accompanying university research group Knowledge-based Systems of Prof. Andreas Dengel CBR was one of the research and teaching topics of Armin Stahl and me. Together we developed the CBR tool myCBR, which now becomes a focal point of further research and innovation transfer to industry.
