QUESTION 1
a. Describe how expert systems perform inference [4 marks]


Inferencing is the reasoning process of AI. It takes place in the brain of an AI process.
The brain of an expert system is the inference engine that provides a methodology for reasoning about information in the knowledge base. Inference can be performed using semantics networks,
production rules, and logic statements.


b. Describe generic categories of Expert Systems applications [16 marks]
Diagnosis. These are mainly used in the medical field to recommend remedies to illnesses, trouble-shoot electronic or mechanical problems or as debugging tools.

Repair. Expert systems that define repair strategies are also very common. As well as diagnosing the problem they can suggest a plan for the repair of the item. The repair plan typically contains a scheduling structure and some control structure to validate the repair process. Such systems have been employed in the automotive repair field and similar areas.

Instruction. They are mainly used in the training of pilots . Instructional expert systems have been used for individualised training or instruction in a particular field. The system presents material in an order determined by its evaluation of the user’s ability and current knowledge and monitor’s the progress of the student, altering the sequence depending on this progress.

Interpretation. Interpretive expert systems have the ability to analyse data to determine its significance or usefulness. The knowledge base often contains models of real world situations which it compares to its data. These are often used in exploration for mineral, gas and oil deposits as well as in surveillance, image analysis and speech understanding.

Predictive expert systems are used as a method to “guess” at the possible outcomes of observed situations, usually providing a probability factor.…...

... opponent and getting back to the Championship. I think DPT will make sure the board will not have anything to say after this week. Last but not least Franchise vs. Rollers, last year game The Rollers beat Franchise in a dominating fashion. Rollers have all the talent to win every game, but have to make better decisions. The Franchise have looked consistent all year and play smash football. I have been saying all year they remind me of the Ravens or the Steelers, I think it will be the same this week. Mr. Proficient The Pure Athletes bring what most people consider the best running attack in T9M. They have won the games they were supposed to win and are still searching for the respect they believe they deserve. They are in the position of getting no credit for the wins they already have and can only wait until week 9, when the schedule gives them a chance to prove themselves to the league. The 2Kool family may be the best group of all around people in the league, but the men’s team has failed to provide the breakout season they all expected. This matchup with the Rotts does however provide for an interesting backdrop. The 2Kool QB used to be widely regarded as the league’s best rusher when he was with the Rotts. The 2Kool safety was also regarded as one of the leagues best while playing with the Rotts organization. One can only assume that this will bring out the best in both teams. The Rotts still need to figure out which direction they will be going in as far......

A Fuzzy Expert System for Task Distribution

...A Fuzzy Expert System for Task Distribution in Teams under Unbalanced Workload Conditions José A. Benito Calleja and Jimmy Troost Thales Nederland, Hengelo, The Netherlands jose.benito@nl.thalesgroup.com, jimmy.troost@nl.thalesgroup.com Abstract Inappropriate workload levels on the team members of a naval force have been detected as a problem that can threaten the performance and safety of future naval operations. A suitable distribution of tasks among the members of a team is a crucial issue in order to prevent high and low workload levels. In this paper, we propose a rule-based expert system, the Task Distribution Expert System (TDES), which assists team leaders to manage mental workload in a team by suggesting appropriate task assignments. The TDES emulates the behavior of a team leader deciding which member of the team should perform a task and how. The system handles mental workload as an uncertain fuzzy concept comprising three fuzzy variables that represent the way mental workload affects performance. Automation issues and different recommendations for effective workload management in teams are analyzed and incorporated. A prototype demonstrates the system. 1. Introduction Naval Command and Control (C2) systems support organizations formed by a number of people cooperating on a multitude of tasks simultaneously to achieve overall goals. Future naval C2 systems are characterized by less people, more information available, shorter...

...What is the role of the expert witness in the trial and to what extent do such witnesses fulfil this role? In understanding what expert witnesses do, one has to first establish the definition of an expert witness. An expert witness can be defined as “a person who can provide information and opinion from the body of knowledge that makes up their own expertise.” An example of an expert witness would be a psychologist. As a general rule laid by Lord Mansfield in Folkes v Chadd, “the opinion of scientific men upon proven facts may be given by men of science within their own science. In this essay, the term expert witness is going to be put under the microscope, divulging into the many aspects and rules of an expert witness and the opinion they give. A In the Criminal Procedure Rule, it terms an expert witness a person who is required to give expert evidence for the purpose of criminal proceedings, including evidence that is to determine the fitness to plead or for the purpose of sentencing. For example one may call on a police officer that is experience in collision investigations may offer his expert opinion on how the accident transpired. There are also times when an expert witness is not required, where a judge or jury can form his or her own views and inferences without the help of an expert. Expert witnesses can be called to testify on a variety of issues, such as DNA analyses, engineering, architecture, handwriting, fingerprints, psychologists, pathologist, etc...

...Expert System Robert Savageau CIS 501 ABSTRACT In the creation of an Expert System the knowledge base is in the center of it all. Understanding the process which is done through identifying, conceptualizing, formalizing, implementing, and testing followed by reiterating the stages thereby insuring knowledge acquisitioned is in its totality. There are many knowledge elicitation techniques and their success is in choosing the right method(s) used for the knowledge being acquired. The five general stages of knowledge acquisition will be discussed, as will a few knowledge elicitation methods. It is not the intent of this paper in giving a complete listing and discourse of elicitation methods, rather an introduction of knowledge acquisition design steps and methods of elicitation. Knowledge Acquisition is extracting the knowledge from any source and Knowledge Elicitation deals with attaining that knowledge specifically from people (Burge, 1998). There five general stages in knowledge acquisition giving knowledge engineers (KE) certain activities preparing the knowledge /deliverables from that stage to be used as input in the next (Marakas, p246). Hayes-Roth (1983) as referenced by Marakas (2003) and by De Kock (2003) views knowledge acquisition as consisting of five stages, having the output from one stage becoming the input for the next consecutive stage. The five stage model is a reiterative process of constant improvement and fine tuning to ensure the systems...

...#15 Aircraft Hydraulic Systems Managers should always make sure these systems are always properly serviced and bleed after any maintenance is done to prevent air in the system. Air in these systems may not seem like a big deal, but air is compressible and when entering components, they are weak. The force of air onto a spoiler surface pushes down due to air in a spoiler actuator. Pilots should watch for sudden system pressure and quantity drops, which could be the result in several things such as air that finished its way through the system or a broken component. Air in the lines vibrates and can cause the line to rupture. To prevent this low-pressure system bleed is preferred, exercising all subsystems to push the air out slowly and safely for both personnel and the aircraft. Another key fault to watch for is system demand loads. Both pilots and maintenance alike will power up the hydraulic systems and try to operate every flight control system at once over loading the work load of the pumps causing them to either shell out, crack or the spline shaft of the pump strips out (which is what is supposed to happen to prevent loss of the system). There are all kinds of emergency procedures for these hydraulic systems, some are electrically controlled, some are pneumatically controlled, and some systems have a redundancy system (two systems operating the same component). Electric one is just a switch opening up reserved pressure in an accumulator to operating a sub......

...Nestlé is known for its advocacy to promote health and wellness. As part of this advocacy, Nestlé has been providing free nutrition consultation in some supermarkets and other retail outlets nationwide. This program encourages customers to be mindful of their choice of food. Nestlé’s nutrition service of conducting physical assessment and giving advice to participants with regards to their nutritional needs contributes to the success of the company. I, who have tried this service, can testify that it influenced me to choose Nestlé products over the other brands. After computing my body mass index and body fat percentage, the nutritionist explained to me that the result of my assessment was still normal but I have to be more aware of the food I eat. He then introduced to me the “My Wellness Plate” and reminded me about moderation and balance in diet. After that, he recommended some products (which are, of course, Nestlé products) that I can include in my diet. A free cereal drink was even given to me. One reason why this system is effective is that the assigned people to give consultancy service are registered nutritionist. Without knowing this fact, seeing them in their white uniform alone makes them look reliable. This attracts the consumers to avail the service. Once the consumer avails the service, as part of the company’s marketing strategy, the nutritionist recommends products that the participant can consume. The nutritionist is like a doctor prescribing...

...Expert Systems This paper will explain what Expert Systems are about, how it works the benefits and detriments and give an example about the system. Experts Systems is a man-made cleverness program that has expert level knowledge about a particular area and knows how to use its knowledge to respond properly. In all aspects the expert systems should replace a human expert. As defined by Edward Feigenbaum, “expert system is a wise computer program that uses knowledge and reading procedures to solve problems that are difficult to require major human expertise for their solutions.” (Robin, 2010) Additionally expert systems are usually considered to have six major components which give detail information about how the system works. It is obvious that expert systems must work behaviorally with system users in assisting them in making better decisions. The system interacts with the user by constantly asking for information until it is ready to make a decision. Once the system has gathered the information needed, an answer is returned to the user. It is important to remember that not only must the system assist in making the decision itself; it must also provide the user with reason it employed to reach its decision. The reading engine processes the date the user inputs to find matches with the knowledge base. The knowledge base is where the expert’s information is deposited. The user interface is what allows the user to communicate with the program. The...

Expert System for Portfolio Management

... consistent project execution, improved resource utilization and reduced resource gaps, operational efficiency and it facilitates communication and decision-making. Existing system Many projects executed at a organization are multi-location .It is therefore, critical for project managers to quickly respond to hotspots on project. The organization needs a system that helps share information, improve productivity, and eliminate project delays in addition to the centralized mechanism that could track and manage issues. Furthermore, the schedules and responsibilities should be carefully monitored to ensure that delivery progresses smoothly without unexpected delays. Manual systems and excel sheets are used to capture and consolidate the project based metrics. Project plans are maintained in Microsoft project while timesheets are tracked in an independent system. This results in an overhead in terms of data collation and consolidation of project status reporting. These reports are unreliable or outdated because of the lack of an integrated system to maintain ,manage plans ,issues , timesheets and metrics details. The project plans are also susceptible to a degree of manipulation and are often inaccurate due to periodic updating .

...Inventory System Background of the Study Effective inventory management is an important part of a manager’s job. Managers are tasked to make consistent, reliable, and timely decisions under the challenges of uncertainty, pressure, and lack of information. It is often that managers do not have enough time or information to make a perfect decision but they are forced to solve problems using resources within their control. Effective inventory control requires managers to ensure inventories of the right items in the correct quantities. When an organization overstocks, money is wasted since procuring, storing, and accounting for unneeded items require time, space, and money which could have been used on more critical assets. Likewise, when understocking occurs the organization will more likely to only partly meet their mission or possibly not meet the mission at all. Also, a weak inventory control system is more prone to errors and fraud. Statement of the Problem 1. How can our system generate quality use for the user? 2. Is our proposed system effective in processing needed reports? 3. How can our system guarantee the safety of the information stored? 4. How can our system reduce servile works for the staff involved in the type of field of work? Objectives of the Study This study tries to improve, introduce, and develop the use of inventory system for the ASIA GOLD CORPORATION. The system reduces work for the staff can make inputting of data at easier and faster...

...INTELLIGENT EXPERT SYSTEM BIOMETRICS FOR ANTITERRORISM ABSTRACT: ‘Terrorism’ is one of the highly pronounced words nowadays. Hijacks are taking a lion’s share when we talk about terrorism. This is mainly due to the intrusion of the terrorists into a country by using fake passports or related forged documents. Our project is intended to minimize this to the maximum extent, using the help of biometrics. We have taken finger print and Iris scanning to implement this project, since these are the 2 highly distinguishing features which differentiate one human from another. It is planned to be implemented in two phases. 1.While applying for the passports 2.During the boarding of flights With proper implementation of these schemes, we can ensure that fake passports are not issued and illegally migrating people into the country can be prevented. Keywords: While applying for passport, while boarding flight, advantages, related works, process of Iris scanning and detection of criminals, process of Iris scanning while boarding flight( national or International), coding. PROPOSED SYSTEM: I.INTRODUCTION: Taking the help of Iris scanning and finger print scanning we have designed this project in order to prevent hijacks. It is planned to be implemented in two phases as mentioned earlier. II. WHILE APPLYING FOR THE PASSPORTS: While a person is applying for the passports. Finger prints are scanned. Besides that Iris of the person should also be scanned...
