1 August 1991 Capturing multimedia design knowledge using TYRO, the constraint-based designer's apprentice

TYRO is a visual programming environment that uses a case-based reasoning approach to capturing and reusing knowledge about the design of multimedia presentations. Case-based reasoning assumes that people solve problems by remembering relevant scenarios and modifying or adapting them to the situation at hand, then storing this new approach away for future reuse. In TYRO, the designer constructs a case library by demonstrating solutions of prototypical multimedia problems and defining constraining relations between object sequences. Adaptation and augmentation of the case library takes place as trial presentations reveal failure conditions. The designer constructs rule objects which are combinations of condition objects and actions objects. Condition objects trigger when the failure conditions is detected and action objects, or rules of thumb, fire and revise the constraint network, or revise the sequence of objects, etc. The resulting cases generated are stored and indexed for future use by the system.
