In this paper we propose an approach to knowledge intensive CBR, where explanations are generated from a domain model consisting partly of a semantic network and partly of a Bayesian network (BN). The BN enables learning within this domain model based on the observed data. The domain model is used to focus the retrieval and reuse of past cases, as well as the indexing when learning a new case. Essentially, the BN-powered submodel works in parallel with the semantic network model to generate a statistically sound contribution to case indexing, retrieval and explanation.
