In this section of the professional paper, apply what you have learned from chapters 11 and 12 to descriptively address and answer the problems below. Important Note: Dot not type the actual written problems within the paper itself.
- Search to find and possibly test some applications of artificial intelligence and ES. Consider a fictional or real organizational work environment for which you are currently part of or what to be part of and think about a decision-making problem that requires some expertise (but is not too complicated) for this type of work environment. Based on research, experience and or understanding of this work environment, identify the problems that are supported or can potentially be supported by rule-based systems. Some possible example areas could include, and is not limited to, selection of suppliers, selection of a new employee, job assignment, computer selection, market contact method selection, determination of admission into graduate school and or specific ones more suited to the established work environment based on experience and or desire.
- How does knowledge management support decision-making? Identify products or systems on the Web that help organizations accomplish knowledge management. Start with brint.com and knowledgemanagement.com. Try one out and report your findings and learning experience.
- Important Note: With limited time for a college class, perfection is not expected but effort to be exposed to various tools with attempts to learn about them is critical when considering a career in information technology associated disciplines.
Important Note: There is no specific page requirement for this section of the paper but make sure any content provided fully addresses each problem.
