Abstract

This paper reports a practical application of a computational model of analogical reasoning to a pressing social problem, which is to improve the care of older people with dementia. Underpinning the support for carers for people with dementia is a computational model of analogical reasoning that retrieves information about cases from analogical problem domains. The model implements structure-mapping theory adapted to match source and target domains expressed in unstructured natural language. The model is implemented as a computational service invoked by a mobile app used by carers during their care shifts.
