Discuss the differences among data, information, and knowledge. Describe the role of the chief knowledge officer (CKO). List some of the tools and techniques used in knowledge management. 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. 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....
