Seminar Title: Trace-Based Reasoning: Combining Case-Based Reasoning and Traces to Reason on Experiences

Speaker: Amélie Cordier, Associate Professor, University of Lyon 1

Date and Time: 1:30pm to 3:00pm, the 6th of February 2013 (Wednesday)

Seminar Room: UTS Blackfriars Campus Building 05 CC05.GD.02 (5 minutes walk from the Tower Building CB01 of UTS)

Seminar Chairman: Professor Longbing Cao (longbing.cao@uts.edu.au)

Abstract: In this presentation, we will talk about the emerging concept of Trace-Based Reasoning. Trace-Based Reasoning is an Artificial Intelligence methodology for solving various problems. The specificity of Trace-Based Reasoning is that it uses traces (i.e. sequential records of events) as a rich knowledge source for the reasoning process. During the talk, we will give an overview of the fundamentals of Case-Based Reasoning, a well-known Artificial Intelligence paradigm from which Trace-Based Reasoning draws inspiration. Next, we will describe the fundamental principles of Trace-Based Reasoning, and we will explain the different steps of the process. Thorough the presentation, we will give examples of applications of Case-Based and Trace-Based Reasoning in various applications domains such as Health Sciences, Educational Software, Video Recommendations, Driver Behaviors, Semantic Web, Motion-Based Interactions, Cooking, etc.

Short biography of the speaker: Amélie Cordier is an assistant professor at the University of Lyon 1. She does her research at the LIRIS Laboratory. She got her PhD from Lyon 1 University. Her main research field is dynamic knowledge engineering, Case-Based Reasoning and Trace-Based Reasoning. She is involved in several projects in this field.
