Type 6 KASER (knowledge amplification by structured expert randomization) for providing case-based inductive and analogical reasoning

A system and method for inductive and analogical reasoning provide capabilities for generalization, creative reasoning, possibilistic analysis, massive parallelism, and distributed processing. The system and method involve using matched cases/generalizations/analog inferences from a case base or generalization/analog base to provide output inferences based upon a user-supplied context. A user then provides feedback to indicate that the output inference is either correct or incorrect. If the user indicates that the output is incorrect, new rules may be computer-generated during runtime by performing, for example, an analogical contextual transformation. If the user indicates that the output is correct, the matched case/generalization/analog may be moved to the head of its respective base.
