Principles of Information Systems - Chapter 11 Principles of Information Systems - Chapter 11 Presentation Transcript

  • Specialized Business Information Systems Chapter 11
  • Principles and Learning Objectives
    • Artificial intelligence systems form a broad and diverse set of systems that can replicate human decision making for certain types of well-defined problems.
      • Define the term artificial intelligence and state the objective of developing artificial intelligence systems.
      • List the characteristics of intelligent behavior and compare the performance of natural and artificial intelligence systems for each of these characteristics.
      • Identify the major components of the artificial intelligence field and provide one example of each type of system.
  • Principles and Learning Objectives
    • Expert systems can enable a novice to perform at the level of an expert but must be developed and maintained very carefully.
      • List the characteristics and basic components of expert systems.
      • Identify at least three factors to consider in evaluating the development of an expert system.
      • Outline and briefly explain the steps for developing an expert system.
      • Identify the benefits associated with the use of expert systems .
  • Principles and Learning Objectives
    • Virtual reality systems have the potential to reshape the interface between people and information technology by offering new ways to communicate information creatively.
      • Define the term virtual reality and provide three examples of virtual reality applications.
    • Special-purpose systems can help organizations and individuals achieve their goals.
      • Discuss examples of special-purpose systems for organizational and individual use.
  • An Overview of Artificial Intelligence
  • The Nature of Intelligence
    • Learn from experience & apply the knowledge
    • Handle complex situations
    • Solve problems when important information is missing
    • Determine what is important
  • The Nature of Intelligence
    • React quickly & correctly to new situations
    • Understand visual images
    • Process & manipulate symbols
    • Be creative & imaginative
    • Use heuristics
  • The Difference Between Natural and Artificial Intelligence
  • The Major Branches of Artificial Intelligence
  • An Overview of Expert Systems
  • Characteristics of an Expert System
    • Can explain their reasoning or suggested decisions
    • Can display “intelligent” behavior
    • Can draw conclusions from complex relationships
    • Can provide portable knowledge
    • Can deal with uncertainty
    • Not widely used or tested
  • Characteristics of an Expert System
    • Limited to relatively narrow problems
    • Cannot readily deal with “mixed” knowledge
    • Possibility of error
    • Cannot refine its own knowledge
    • May have high development costs
    • Raise legal and ethical concerns
