Instance based reasoning systems and in general case based reasoning systems are normally used in problems for which it is difficult to define rules. Instance based reasoning is the term which tends to be applied to systems where there are a great amount of data (often of a numerical nature). The volume of data in such systems leads to difficulties with respect to case retrieval and matching. This paper presents a comparative study of a group of methods based on Kernels, which attempt to identify only the most significant cases with which to instantiate a case base. Kernels were originally derived in the context of Support Vector Machines which identify the smallest number of data points necessary to solve a particular problem (e.g. regression or classification). We use unsupervised Kernel methods to identify the optimal cases to instantiate a case base. The efficiencies of the Kernel models measured as Mean Absolute Percentage Error are compared on an oceanographic problem.
