Abstract

A challenge for any case-based reasoning system is how to acquire the cases with which to reason. Here we explore acquiring cases via natural language instruction by a person. We show how, using microstories (1-3 sentence stories) expressed in simplified English syntax, small cases - called common sense units - can be incrementally added to improve analogical reasoning performance.
