  • CBR for signals, images, video, audio and text
  • Similarity assessment
  • Case representation and case mining
  • Retrieval and indexing
  • Conversational CBR
  • Meta-learning for model improvement and parameter setting for processing with CBR
  • Incremental model improvement by CBR
  • Case base maintenance for systems
  • Case authoring
  • Life-time of a CBR system
  • Measuring coverage of case bases
  • Ontology learning with CBR
