The work on this project started on the basis of Associative Memory Based Reasoning AMBR model of analogical memory retrieval and reasoning. The goal was to explore the abilities of the model to do adaptive problem solving by making remote analogies, re-representing the target situation according to the current context, abstracting analogical cases and generalization of known solutions. In line with the project objectives, a number of new mechanisms were developed and their advantages were demonstrated in a series of simulations. In addition, some psychological experiments were conducted in order to verify the predictions of the model. Within the project, we also developed a set of technical tools for monitoring and controlling the operation of AMBR. The major results obtained were disseminated at conferences, workshops and other public events.
